Class Details:

We will knit a mini version of a seamless, tailored top down sweater with the clever Åsa Tricosa Ziggurat method. You will learn the German Short Row, how and where to pick up stitches for sleeve caps, how to read the Helpful Table, the crochet cast on for a perfect neckline. And more.
After the class you will be ready to knit a full-size version for yourself – or for some very deserving person.

• Tricks for picking up cap and shoulder stitches to create neat, seam-like edges
