close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Intermediate Sweater Class ONLINE

Is it time to take your sweater knitting up a notch? Let Lisa help you get there!

Learn to knit the stylish Yume sweater from Isabell Kraemer. This pretty piece has a lace yoke and can be knit with short or long sleeves. It's knit from the top-down, so you can try it on as you go and there is no seaming or finishing!

To have fun in this class, you need to be able to cast on, knit, purl, knit in the round, and bind off. You will learn to create lace with yarn-overs, increases, and decreases. You will even learn German short rows! Since this is all online, you should be to ready to learn to read your knitting, rip out work, and return stitches to your needles after fittings. Mostly, you need to be willing to try new techniques!

You will have homework when you sign up! Lisa will ask you to knit a 4x4" swatch (in stockinette in the round using the larger needles) and wet block it to ensure you are getting gauge for the best fit.
