Does sweater knitting intimidate you? Would you like to tweak your skills? We have a fantastic workshop for you!

Our expert instructor Renee Jones 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 sweater, how to achieve desired fit, picking up stitches, buttonholes, finishing techniques and blocking. Renee will also talk about what fibers work best and how to care for your new cardigan.

This workshop begins in mid-September and will go through mid-November. Students will receive individualized attention in every session attended so you may work at your own pace. We recommend a minimum of 4 sessions for each student, with the option to purchase more sessions individually if needed as the workshop progresses. As sessions fill up, registration will be closed for those specific dates. We recommend signing up early to reserve the dates you want.

The 4-session workshop fee of $110 includes the Uniform: Knit & Sew book (or $80 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. Renee will provide hard copies of additional handouts to further understand sweater anatomy, taking measurements, blocking, and more. She will also be available throughout the workshop via text and email if help is needed. Additional sessions are available for $20 each.
