Learn the basic constitution of a knitted Raglan sweater, my personal favorite way to knit a sweater. We will be making a 2-4 year old size, using 100% Fine super wash wool. Soft enough to be worn right on delicate skin. I will break down each step as we go.

Skills needed: Knitting in the round, Knit, Purl, increases & decreases. You are perfectly set up for this class if you have taken my Knitting 101 class!

Skills you will learn: Construction of  a sweater, how to make and use a gauge swatch, increases, decreases, how to wet block a sweater, and Two at a time Magic Loop.

About Jessica:

How fun for me, I get to share my passion of knitting with you.
I was born and raised right here in Mt. Vernon. I married my High School sweetheart and together we have 2 children. I own Backwoods Soap Company and am a stay at home Mom. I love my jobs.

I learned to knit in the remote fishing town of Cordova Alaska in 2017. We lived there one summer, while my husband was busy working, I decided to take a Knit & Purl class. The very next thing I did was a sweater class. It's safe to say I was completely hooked. Knitting in Cordova is very popular, classes and get-togethers were common, I loved them all. I became friends with amazing, uplifting woman.

Since coming home that fall my obsession with knitting continued but I have missed my knitting community. By offering a variety of classes and get-togethers I look forward to building with you what I found in Cordova. Basically, I want people as hooked on knitting as I am. I want this to be an uplifting group for woman of all ages.
