Blanche Sweater

 

Blanche is a loosely fitting pullover made of four different types of yarn. The change in textural elements paired with the change of fibers creates an interesting and engaging yoke. Krisee will help you through the lace and textural sections of the yoke while also explaining how to compensate for the changing fibers throughout. Since the focus of the class will be on the stitch elements of the yoke, we recommend you have some sweater experience before taking this class.
