Sweater Workshop: Top-Down Cardigan (6 weeks)
Wednesdays, October 11, 18, 25, and November 1, 8, 15, 10:30am-12pm • $142
Teacher: Carol Ullmann
Interested in making a wardrobe basic? Carol Ullmann will walk you through knitting up a cardigan that you’ll turn to again and again. “Vanessa” is a straightforward knit: raglan shaping, a little ribbing for interest, gentle waist shaping--all in a worsted weight, for easy work and quick results. This workshop meets over a period of six weeks, giving participants plenty of time to keep up with work and ask questions of expert knitter Carol Ullmann.
Pre-requisites: Participants should be familiar with the following: the long-tail cast-on, knitting, purling, basic increasing and decreasing, knitting in the round (using double-points or magic loop), and binding off.
• Worsted weight yarn sufficient for your chosen sweater size, purchased from Spun. (We recommend Malabrigo Rios or Stonehedge Shepherd’s Wool.) (Note: Spun staff is always available to help you decide which size to make and how much yarn you need. We suggest that only one skein be wound before the first class, so that you have an opportunity to swatch before you commit to keeping your yarn: once yarn is wound, it isn’t returnable.)
• 24” size US5 AND US6 circular OR straight needles (for swatching)
• 32” circular needle OR double-points (set of five) in correct size chosen after swatching (for sleeves)
• Darning or tapestry needle
• Row counter
• Stitch markers
