This workshop is six hours of near nonstop learning! We'll be knitting a sampler sweater over a three week period. This little guy has 136 stitches and is the smallest project designable that enables the student to learn a number of elements that go into knitting a Fair Isle sweater, regardless of size. We'll learn about sweater construction, what makes a Fair Isle a "Fair Isle", and dive right in! This course covers steeking, corrugated ribbing, underarm steeks, etc. There will be homework over the weeks, of course --- KNITTING!
*Materials Needed: $45 kit includes all you'll need for this course.
