Spring Sweater - 4 sessions
The first pattern from Kelbourne Woolens's Season of Sweaters, Kate Gagnon Osborn designed the Spring Sweater to be a classic, go-to throw on anytime with anything pullover. Worked in pieces from the bottom up, once the pieces are blocked and seamed, stitches are picked up to work the neck. For those of you that have not seamed a garment before this is a great project to stretch those skills. You'll learn the Tiny Tuck Stitch, mattress stitch, picking up stitches, short row shaping, and sloped bind-off.
We highly recommend doing a gauge swatch before the first class! Really. If you aren't sure what this means or need assistance, please don't hesitate to ask one of our craft associates.
