Overcome your fear of sweater knitting in this beginner-friendly workshop! Under Lizzie's guidance, you will make the One Sweater, a gender-inclusive design sized for children and adults. The class will cover everything a new sweater knitter needs to know, from sizing and swatching to blocking your finished sweater. You'll also learn all the knitting techniques used in the pattern, including short rows and the tubular cast-on and bind-off. By the end of the workshop, you will have a classic garment to keep or gift, plus the confidence to make many more!
