Do you admire the beautiful sweaters from Scandinavia? Now you can learn to make your own! You’ll knit a doll size sweater to learn the techniques of two-color knitting using steeks (small bridges of knitted stitches added to the main pattern), allowing you to knit continuously in the round, which is easier than switching to purling every other row. You cut the steeks to shape your sweater and finish the cut edges. Steeks can be used to create armholes, neck openings, pockets, or cardigan fronts as well as to knit blankets in the round. This class is suitable for advanced beginner knitters and above.
