Cottonwood Sweater Class, Fall

The Cottonwood Sweater is a dolman-shape, turtleneck sweater with an oversize fit, and lots of ribbing! This sweater is for those days when you want to throw on something simple, easy, and comfortable, but don’t want to sacrifice style. We are excited that local knitwear designer, Tayler Harris, will be teaching another one of her exquisite patterns at Blazing Needles. Knit in a lightweight DK yarn, the Cottonwood will be perfect on breezy summer nights and translate well for fall wear. 

Please note: This class will be tough in person at Blazing Needles, and as such we are limiting the class sizes. Please wear your mask and come ready to have a good time!
