Cast on and learn all the techniques you need to make your first cardigan. We will knit Magnolia Chunky Cardigan by Camilla Vad, a soft and elegant cardigan. It is worked seamlessly flat from the topp down with a beautiful lace pattern at thhe bottom. This is the perfect sweater to wear layered over tunics and dresses, and waisted pants as well. I suggest putting all the stitches on waste yarn and trying the sweater on before you begin the lace to be sure you have a length you will like and will enjoy wearing.
We will be covering gauge, swatching, positive/negative ease, short rows, picking up for the front band.
This is a very easy and very quick knit with worsted/light aran weight yarn worked at a relaxed open gauge.
Pattern is required through Ravelry for this class. The cardigan version is written to be worked back and forth in rows, the neck is shaped with short rows, the body and sleeves are divided after the yoke shaping. The body is worked back and forth in rows, the sleeves are worked in the round. The lace of the cardigan starts immediately after separating the body from the sleeves. This is is where you may wish to add length. The body can be made any length but plan to purchase more yarn.
Advanced beginner - You will need to know how to knit and purl.
