About this experience

This is a perfect class for beyond beginner / intermediate knitters looking to add or hone a few skills that are beyond the basics! The Ursa Sweater was designed by Jacqueline Cieslak. It's a bulky, bold, cropped sweater with super fun detail like the half brioche stitch and German short rows. It's constructed from the top-down with raglan shaping for the sleeves and has an option for adding horizontal bust darts in three cup sizes. You will also have the option to add length if cropped isn't for you!

Over this three-session (five week) workshop, Theresa will guide you through the creation of this beautiful, warm, cozy, and size-inclusive knit pullover raglan sweater. This pattern has been designed for many body types and Theresa will include advice on how to make custom adjustments to get the fit just right.

Workshop fee includes ALL MATERIALS - yup, all the yarn, needles, and notions needed to make this project in your size in Echoview Fiber Mill 2ply Bulky Ranger Merino (a beautiful blend of American Merino + Rambouillet). You will have an opportunity to select your yarn color.
