Sweater Basics: Carrie Turner of the Unwind Staff will teach you everything you need to know to make your first beautiful sweater, or to level up your current sweater game. We'll use the Lento Sweater by Jonna Hietala (publisher of Laine Magazine) and your choice of DK weight yarn to launch your sweater-making journey.

We are offering this class in 8 two hour sessions; choose the sessions you most need or purchase the whole package. FYI--á la carte classes like Ravelry 101, gauge, short rows, and finishing techniques are great skill builders for everyone, whether or not you want to make a sweater!

  • Session 1, May 5th: yarn selection, gauge and swatching
  • Session 2, May 19th: reading patterns, casting on, and neckline
  • Session 3, June 2nd: raglan set up and short rows

  • Session 7, June 30th: finishing techniques
  • Session 8, July 14th: Ravelry 101; learn how to use this invaluable tool for all your making and/or to pick your next perfect sweater project
