Mandelbrot Sweater - 4 sessions

gather here Classes

Mandelbrot is a bottom-up seamless sweater knitted in the round, featuring a stranded circular yoke and a slightly raised more comfortable neckline on the back, shaped with short rows. A traditional version with straight sleeves and body is provided, but the construction is also revisited to allow a more feminine fit, featuring waist shaping and fitted sleeves with an underarm gusset. The pattern comes in nine sizes and two designs – pullover and steeked cardigan.

Limited to 6 students (16 yrs of age or older); 2 students are required for class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund.
