Do you love the idea of a stranded cardigan but hate the idea of purlnig with two colors? If so, then this is the class for you. This sweater is knit in the round from the yoke down, sleeves are separated out and knit down after the body is complete, then the sweater is steeked. Steeking is a scandanavian method of knitting in the round, then cutting open your knitting to create cardigans and blankets. In this class, you'll learn how to manage two colors, read charts, study yarn dominance, and finally, in the last class, cut open your work and secure the edges. Finally, you will crochet a quick border and button holes and finish it off. This class is a lot of knitting (we allow two weeks between classes for that reason)-, and if you don't think you can finish the knitting before the last class, you probably shouldn't sign up, or you will miss the steeking class.
