Knitting a Top-Down Raglan Sweater
September 15, 22, 29 Oct 6, 13, 20 (Monday nights)
Memorial Hall at Potwin Presbyterian Church
Maximum of 5 students
We will be knitting Flax by TinCanKnits, which is a simple top-down raglan sweater – great for men, women, or children. We will talk about gauge, how fabric behaves, seamless sweater construction, and fit. I will provide printed materials with information on how to knit a top-down raglan that fits. Techniques covered include: knitting a flat gauge swatch “in the round”, raglan shaping, increasing, decreasing, knitting in the round on circular needles, magic loop, and double pointed needles (optional.)
Flax is a free downloadable pattern, but student must download from the following link:
