***Basic knit/purl and cast on/off knowledge needed – if not sure how to do this, book separate time with me private lessons before the course begins***

In this class, you’ll use a basic raglan sweater pattern to create a sweater that speaks to you. 

You can hold multiple strands together to create a super bulky yarn, or start with a super bulky yarn. You can add ribbing to your sleeve cuffs and bottom of your sweater if you choose! You can create a short sleeve sweater, 3/4 sleeve, long sleeve. You can add decreases on your sleeve to create a more fitted look or you can create a tube/bell sleeve. You can create a sweater dress, medium length sweater or a cropped sweater! It’s up to you, and this class is your chance to experiment with intuitive knitting and learn the basics of a raglan pattern.
