Knit Your First Sweater: Meet CardiZen
We will learn how to knit a cardigan using the most basic knitting techniques. This simple pattern yields a very stylish garment that flatters your figure. Using mostly the knit stitch (purling on the sleeve cuffs is optional), we will learn how to edge our knitting, create an armhole, cast on stitches in the middle of your work, bind off stitches, increase and decrease, pick up stitches, and work in the round. We will also use a crochet hook to create an afterthought seam. In this class we will create a tiny mock up of the CardiZen, so that you can go home and confidently knit the whole garment.
Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off
