knitting series 301: summer top

Anker’s Summer Top by Petite Knit is the perfect summer knitting project.

The top is knit from the top down, the yoke is worked in sections of rib with increases in the round giving this top beautiful detailing around the neckline.  The ribbing is followed by classic raglan increases when the stockinette stitch section begins.

The sleeves are worked at the end using the Magic Loop technique.

Students knitting this top will need to knit a swatch prior to the first class.  This will then be used to measure stitch gauge.  You will learn how to increase in rib stitch, magic loop technique, blocking & many more tips & tricks along the way.

The pattern is available in sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL 

This class requires pre-work to be completed before the first class, details of this will be sent out to you when you register. There will also be the need for homework if you are to come away from class with a completed project
