Does sweater knitting intimidate you? Would you like to tweak your skills? We have a fantastic workshop for you!
We are teaming up with expert instructor Renee Jones and Uniform: Knit & Sew 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 consists of 8 sessions beginning in March and ending in May. 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, 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. 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.
Our Uniform Sweater Workshop takes place on Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 3-5pm on these dates:
March 16th, 23th, and 30th
April 13th, 14th and 20th
May 4th, 5th, 11th, 12th and 18th
We will contact you to reserve your 4 dates upon receipt of your registration. Students will receive 10% off yarn and supplies needed 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, so sign up here!
*Workshops are non-refundable and we cannot guarantee make-up sessions. If you realize that you cannot make one of your scheduled sessions, please let us know right away. We will try to reschedule you based on availability.
