BEGINNER-INTERMEDIATE. You need to know how to double crochet confidently and count your stitches. If you haven't made a crochet sweater before, this class is for you!
Sensit Sweater by Linda Skuja is a beautiful flowing textural crochet sweater design. A pleasure to make and oh so satisfying to see it come to life!
In this 6 part class we will make the sweater together and ensure it fits you how you like! We will discuss adjustments for body length and sleeve length - the beauty of making our own clothes is the ability to make them how we want them to be!
Classes include homework, with two week intervals to ensure you get the most out of each lesson.
You will need to be comfortable with measuring your body in class.
