Everything you need to be able to knit your first sweater, from how to take measurements, to how to work the final finishes so that the result is what you expected. This is a workshop for people with basic knowledge, but it can also be useful if you are thinking of designing a sweater and want to learn the ins and outs of these designs.
In addition to the classroom workshop, you will have access to a mini-course to answer any questions that you do not have time to resolve and you will take a basic pattern to develop your own sweater.
Previous knowledge: Basic knitting knowledge is required: cast on, knit and purl, assembling and closing stitches with circular needles, at least to have knitted a hat.
- Yarn you want to knit the sweater with.
- Circular needles with 60 cm cable
- Needles suitable for the chosen yarn
- You will take with you an adaptable pattern and video lessons for after the workshop.
