Does sweater knitting intimidate you? Would you like to tweak your skills? Our best-selling Uniform Workshop is returning this January!

Our expert instructor Renée Williamson and Uniform: Knit & Sew have teamed up to bring you the ultimate sweater knitting workshop. This workshop takes you through the entire process, covering everything from gauge swatching, the anatomy of a top-down cardigan, how to achieve desired fit, picking up stitches, buttonholes, finishing techniques and blocking. Renée will also talk about what fibers work best and how to care for your new cardigan.

This workshop runs from January through March. Students will receive individualized attention in every session attended so you may work at your own pace. There are three different sessions running concurrently in order to accommodate different schedules: Sunday afternoon sessions, Monday evening sessions, and Wednesday evening sessions. Scroll to the bottom to see the dates for each session and to register for one.

The 5-session workshop fee of $130 includes the Uniform: Knit & Sew book (or $100 for those who already have the book), which will help guide you through a top-down cardigan using either fingering/sport or worsted weight yarn, and includes numerous body, sleeve, hem, and finishing options. All students will receive 10% off supplies needed for the workshop. Renée will provide hard copies of additional handouts to further understand sweater anatomy, taking measurements, blocking, and more.

For students that wish to receive extra help between sessions or after the series ends, we are offering a discounted private lesson rate. Outside of the workshop, Renée can be scheduled at a rate of $20/hr or $10/half hour for additional help. Please contact Renée to schedule in advance because we can’t always guarantee help for drop-ins.
Students will receive 10% off yarn used for the workshop. You can choose your yarn any time between your sign-up and your first session. Knowledge of the knit and purl stitch are required for this workshop, but once you have these basics down, you are ready to take this workshop.

*Workshops are non-refundable and we cannot guarantee make-up sessions, so please make sure all five dates in your chosen session work for you.
