Equinox Sweater: this is a two-session class: January 12th and 26th,
Fee: $30 includes pattern Instructor: Doris Prokop Limit: 8
The Equinox Sweater is a favorite pattern from Interweave
Knits' Knitscene. The entire sweater is knit from the top-down, there is no
purling and no seaming. It is the perfect beginner's sweater! Of course, all
levels of knitters are welcome, but this is a great project for those ready to
move on from scarves and hats. :)
As per instructions from Doris, the
best yarn to purchase is that of 50% or higher of animal fiber (wool, alpaca,
etc.). This helps with blocking and counteracting the rolling of hems. We at
Warm Hearts Yarn are happy to help you find a great yarn for this sweater! All
yarn purchased specifically for this class will receive a 10% discount.
