Folded Squares Cardigan - $50

Saturdays, Oct. 21st 1-2p, Nov. 4th 1-2p, Nov. 18th 1-2p & Dec. 9th 12-2p

The unique construction of the Folded Squares Cardigan has kept it on our minds since its release. Knit in garter stitch, simple shapes are folded and seamed to create this cozy garment. Choose a yarn with a little drape to make this a perfect, lightweight layering piece. The easy construction makes this an awesome sweater for all levels of knitters! We'll be walking through each of the major steps in three short classes before seaming our sweaters in the last session. 

Prerequisites: Intermediate-beginner skills (long-tail cast-on, knit & purl stitches)

Homework: Please be sure to have your pattern printed before you arrive for class; students should knit a swatch at least 4x4" in garter stitch (knit every row) and block it before the first class
