Class Details:
In this class, I'll teach you step-by-step how to knit the Be Mine Sweater, a popular Knit Collage pattern. This pattern is knit sideways and is super simple to knit, making this class ideal for those wanting to tackle their first sweater. Additionally, this pattern is easy to customize to fit your body exactly and I'll show you how to do that. Lastly, the Be Mine sweater is ideal for mixing different bulky weight yarns and textures together. If you feel like getting adventuresome with your knitting and color use this is a great class for you! I'll bring along different Knit Collage yarns for you to experiment with and add into your sweater if you like. I'll also have many samples of the sweater in tow for you to use as visual inspiration. Technique Requirements: Knit/purl; cast on/bind off
Supplies for Class:
Be Mine Sweater Materials
3 Skeins Knit Collage Spun Cloud (100% Wool, approx. 100 yds. for the crop and stripe version - 16" body length)
4 Skeins Knit Collage Spun Cloud for the long version (22" body length)
For the stripe version only:
1 Knit Collage Mini Skein Sampler Kit (mixed fiber, approx. 85 yards) If you would like to use non-Knit Collage yarn - no problem! These yarns are a bulky weight, so I just recommend that you match the original yarn in weight as closely as you can. In the stripe version, we'll mix and match different yarns together, if you have anything
from your stash that you think would look great mixed in, bring it along! I'll also teach you how to customize the body length for this sweater. Use the above yarn usage for a guide on how much yarn you'll need if you plan to customize your own length.
Size 13 Needles - straight or circular is great
Size 17 Needles - long circular needles, 32" or longer recommended
Tapestry Needle
Scrap Yarn for Stitch Holder
Coordinating Embroidery Floss or other strong light weight yarn for seaming sides
