Have you wanted to knit a sweater but haven’t yet made the leap? Have you made sweaters in the past but want to add a new technique to your skill set? This class is all about YOU; you pick the sweater pattern that is best for you and then we’ll use that pattern to learn the basics of sweater knitting and help you build your skills and confidence. In the end, you will have a beautiful sweater that you can wear proudly! This fun class will meet monthly over four total sessions, so there will be plenty of time to make progress on your sweater in between scheduled classes.

In this class we will work on:

  • Swatch making
  • Knitting and purling
  • Increases and decreases 
  • Understanding a pattern
  • Chart reading (if applicable)
  • Blocking a finished product


Supplies (all available at Finch!):

  • A sweater pattern of your choosing
  • Yarn for your sweater
  • Needles in the sizes outlined in your sweater pattern (or sizes needed to get gauge)
  • Any other materials specifically called for in your sweater pattern (stitch markers, tapestry needle, etc.)
