Learn to Knit a Baby Sweater

Learn classic top down sweater techniques and make this adorable baby sweater in four 1-hour classes spread out over four weeks. This class will teach you everything you need to know to make an adult size-sweater, too (the techniques are the same, this is just on a smaller scale!)

This class has homework to be completed before the first class! See below for more info. 

You must already know how to: cast on, knitpurl, work in a rib, add new yarn, and bind off. If you do not know any of these techniques, we can teach you how to do any of them in our Thursday Evening Workshop.

You will learn how to: use make one right and make one left increases, use markers, separate for sleeves, cast on in the middle of a row, use the magic loop technique, pick up stitches, and make buttonholes.

Pattern sizes available: 0–3 (3–6, 6–12, 12–18, 18–24) months

Required materials: 70 (73, 75, 85, 100) yards of dk weight yarn for the trim color
150 (210, 225, 325, 420) yards of dk weight yarn for the main color, US 6 (4 mm) 24–32” circulars, 8 stitch markers, 6 1/2”–5/8” buttons, and sewing needle & thread.

Please purchase your supplies at Cast Away.
