Make a sweater of your choice that fits the way you want it to. Some suggestions for the pattern: from the Knit Swirl book, or a simple top-down pullover or cardigan. We'll get you on the right track and keep you there and you will gain experience in pattern reading. The class will meet every Saturday.
