Cast on for a Celosias sweater- the perfect introduction to the world of colorwork-yoked sweater knitting! Knit this in a lightweight yarn for a warm-weather tee, or get a jump on your fall knitting and make a cozy woolen version with long sleeves!
In this class, you’ll learn to knit a yoked sweater from the top down. You’ll knit your colorwork yoke and then separate the sleeves and body of the sweater and knit them. Weave in the ends and you’ve got yourself a new sweater!
Materials:Pattern, enough DK weight yarn for the size you’re making, (we think Softyak DK would be beautiful!) circular and double-pointed needles in the sizes to get gauge, stitch holders or waste yarn, stitch markers, and tapestry needle.
Homework: Please come to the first class with your pattern purchased, yarn selected and your swatch knit. We’ll give you swatching instructions when you select your yarn.
Skill level: This class is for graduates of Knit 2 and those who are comfortable knitting and purling in the round.
