Skill Level: Clever Crafter
Woof Woof! Meow Meow! What’s that you say? That’s your favourite furry friend wondering where THEIR handknits are. We’re here to save the day with a fun sweater for your dog or cat! We’ll work with you to create a custom-sized sweater for your favourite pet. You’ll learn about all about gauge swatches, afterthought knitting, and pattern customization-- a perfect project for seasoned garment knitters and sweater newbies alike!
In this learning environment, participants must be comfortable with knitting, purling, working in the round, and ribbing. Experience with small-circumference knitting (either DPNS or magic loop) is strongly recommended.
*Supplies: Pet Sweater is structured like a knit-a-long, so that means supplies are not included in the price of the class. To make sure you are ready to go on class day, you’ll need to follow a few steps:
1.) Purchase your supplies:
- 6mm DPNs AND 16” circular needles
