Ash Sweater Class

Found in Plain & Simple, Ash is a boxy sweater with a Half-Brioche (much easier than full brioche!) trim along the bottom and sleeves.  Ash also boasts pockets (who doesn't love pockets?!)  Whitney will guide you through the construction of this sweater while teaching you valuable techniques like half-brioche stitch, how to make pockets, short rows, and more! 

Because this sweater has so much ease, it is a lot of knitting, therefore, we are suggesting it would be an appropriate class for an ambitious beginner or intermediate knitter.
