Knit-Along Pressed Flower Sweater
September 7 @ 6:00 am – 8:00 pm
4 Classes are on Thursdays, Sept 7, 14, 21, and Oct 5 at 6:00 pm
Amy Christoffers Pressed Flowers Pullover is the newest design in her series of beautiful garments and accessories of flower motifs. The allover Mosaic technique is fun and a great way to get into colorwork knitting, as you are only holding one strand of yarn at a time. Knit in dk weight yarn, you’re sure to have a warm and comfortable sweater perfect for the cooler months! Also perfect to get ready for all of the Fall fiber festivals!
The first session is a class, where you will learn the Mosiac technique while knitting your swatch. The next 3 sessions are the Knit-Along, meant to help each other along the way, though you should have the skills needed to complete the sweater. There will be an extra week between the 3rd and 4th sessions, to give you more time to knit the body of your sweater.
Our recommended yarn is Scout by Kelbourne Woolens for its beautiful color range, warm, insulating properties, and amazing softness!
Skills Required: Understanding of top-down sweater construction, Mosaic knitting
