knitting series 301: kids cardigan

This 5-part class is the perfect next step to our knitting 201. You will be taken through the steps of making a simple yet super cute baby/ kids cardigan. For sizes 3-12m we will be using the Little Coffee Bean baby cardigan pattern by Elizabeth Smith knits. If you would like to knit a bigger cardigan you can also choose Wonder Years by Elizabeth Smith knits. This is a toddler/ child pattern and includes sizes 2T-10 yrs. 

Both cardigans are knit from top-down and are a raglan construction. As you knit up this traditional cardigan you will learn how to add a button and neck band by learning to pick up the stitches along the edges. You will also have the opportunity to learn the skill of striping or  you can choose to knit in a solid color. The sleeves will be knit using the Magic Loop technique.

This class is suitable for students who have completed our knitting 201 or have similar skill level. 

There will be the need for homework during the course if you are to come away from class with a completed project.  There will also be a little homework prior to the first class.
