BEGINNER-INTERMEDIATE. You need to know how to knit and purl and fix basic mistakes to take this class.

Retro Rings Tee is a great all season top, an enjoyable striped yoke, perfect for a that single skein of fun yarn (or maybe one you've hand painted!)

Learn how to knit a circular yoke top and how to adjust it to fit you to your chest and bicep measurements, really useful if you need more circumference in the chest on your front compared to your back.

Classes include homework, with two week intervals between classes 2-3 & 3-4 to ensure you get the most out of each lesson.

You will need to be comfortable with measuring your body in class. 

Dates: 

Tuesday June 18th & 25th 6:30-8:30pm, July 9th and 23rd, 6:30-8pm.


Materials required (not included):

Sweater top quantity of yarn in two colours of fingering weight yarn, yardage per size details on Ravelry page, you can ask in store for help with this if needed.

Lots of yarn options to choose from! Sample shown is WildWestDye pure merino fingering in MidnightGazer and a handpainted skein, see workshop here

If you want multi-coloured rings like the design sample, then Edelweiss 25g balls will be perfect, Okanagan Dyeworks Zebra yarn available in store would also be super fun.
