Sweater Project Class with Pam

Join the fun as we make Purl Strings, a versatile sweater which is worked from the top down beginning at the neck. Short row shaping is used to raise the back neckline, and then the yoke, body and sleeves are worked in the round. The textures are created simply by working a variety of purl stitches. We will cover elbow (short) length sleeves in class, but the pattern provides instructions for both elbow and long sleeves. Purl Strings Tee has no finishing other than weaving in ends. Knit in DK weight yarn, it’s a great tee to wear three seasons out of the year. 

This class is intended for Adventurous/Advanced Beginner knitters and beyond. Students should be comfortable with casting on, knitting and purling, and binding off.
