This stress-free beginner sweater will teach you all the skills and help provide the confidence you need to approach sweater patterns in the future. You will start by knitting both sleeves, then the body, and finally, you will combine them all together and knit the yoke to tie it all together. You will have the option of a crew-neck, v-neck, or turtleneck. The main purpose of the class is to familiarize you with the construction of a sweater so that you have the confidence and knowledge to approach more difficult sweaters in the future, especially the techniques you need to approach sizing, gauge, and texture in the future.
