Instructor: Carmen Ditzler, Heartfelt. The Easy Bulky One. Knit in a chunky weight yarn this is a perfect first, or second or...eighth sweater. This weight of yarn will knit up relatively quickly, so you can finish it and wear it this winter. A loose fit with dropped shoulders this is a sweater that will soon become a wardrobe staple. The class will walk you through measuring, swatching and calculating for a sweater in the size you intend and how to set yourself up for success. First class will include choosing yarn and needles, but bring what you have. Lots of support and fun!
