Class Description: Here’s a vintage looking colorwork sweater with a modern style twist, that’s fun to make and a great addition to any wardrobe. Think of it as a sweater sweatshirt to wear all fall and winter long. It has a low armhole which is slightly different than typical pullovers, but it gives this piece a comfy and trendy vibe.
This is not a difficult sweater, and it has several things going on that make it really entertaining to knit!
You can customize the length and fit to make it your perfect sweater. We will discuss all the options together, so you don’t need to have it all figured out yourself.
Sound like fun? It is! Ruth will be your guide in making this sweater step by step. Classes are a great way to get all the help you need, enjoy meeting others, and have a plan for completing your project. Also, Ruth is “on call” for you during the entire process.
