Top Down Sweater Class

Class Date Attending


Ready to knit your first sweater?  This is the class for you! 

This sweater is great to throw over a t-shirt or tank top when there is a little chill in the air. It has a 3-4” ease and a figure flattering lace panel in the front and back. The stockinette side gives a visual slimming effect. It is worked from the top-down which means that the sweater can be tried on as it is being knitted to customize its fit, especially in length.  You also have the option to omit the lace - a great choice for beginners or those who want a more classic look.
