Class Details:

Top-down sweaters are so popular nowadays and it's easy to understand why. You can knit everything in one piece, and it's amazing how you can check the fit while you are making it. There are various ways to shape a top-down sweater—as a raglan, circular yoke, or saddle. At this workshop we will focus on the contiguous method. It was created by Susie Myers and produces a fancy shoulder line that drapes nicely. We will knit together a teddy bear–size sweater following the contiguous design. It will be a fun class. Bring your stuffed animal and it will go back home wearing a warm and cute top-down!
