While knitting this classic v-neck sweater, you will learn the basics of seamed sweater construction. We will start with swatching to obtain a good sweater fabric, move through the increases and decreases involved in the different pieces, and end with seaming and picking up stitches for a neckband. This straightforward pullover will soon be a go-to garment in your closet! Please be prepared to knit during the weeks so that you keep up with the various skills involved. Please note there is pre-class homework for this class. You must bring a completed, washed and blocked swatch in at least 2 different needle sizes to the first class.
