Flax Sweater


This pattern is popular for a reason–it’s a great introduction to sweater knitting! Sized from newborn to 6XL, Flax is a top-down raglan pullover with garter stitch details that is a classic design and fun to knit. We’ll plan and measure and discuss gauge and swatching, ease, modifications, magic loop vs. DPNs for sleeves, and how to avoid second sleeve syndrome. If you’re ready to take the leap into garment knitting, this is an excellent place to start. 


Please note that there will be homework between classes. 


Materials: Flax by tincanknits (available for free on Ravelry), enough worsted or aran weight yarn for the size planned, stitch markers, measuring tape, and tapestry needle. The pattern suggests using US 6 and US 8 needles; however, the needles you use will depend on your gauge swatch. For the first class, it is recommended to bring a US 7 and US 8 (needle cord length doesn’t matter, as we’ll talk about what to choose as you make your sweater). 

Classes: Wednesday, January 31, February 7 & 21, March 6 @ 6-8PM
