Are you ready to knit your first sweater? If you’ve been wanting to take your knitting to the garment level, join Lynn and Lizzie as they walk you through the ins and outs of knitting a basic raglan pullover! For this class, you’ll be knitting Andrea Mowry’s “Spin Raglan” with Lynn and Lizzie’s help and support. Along the way, you’ll learn about different modes of sweater construction, choosing an appropriate size, swatching for success, how to knit raglan sleeves, how to pick up stitches for neat neckbands, and finishing tips and tricks. You’ll leave with all the skills and experience you need for sweater success!
