As a Knit-a-long, you will be working on your own throughout most of the project. The first session will show you how to decide which size to knit and which needles to use, help you decide on which yarn to use, and how to compensate for possible color variations if you choose a hand-dyed yarn. Jane will help you get started and make sure you understand the bear track pattern used as a hem.
During the second class session, we will address how to start the sleeve and yoke section and will include information on how to compensate for the larger girth many of us have at the upper arm. Jane will also talk about the possibilities of creating longer sleeves.
