with Myra Wood
Myra's easy top-down raglan bolero is the perfect first sweater project. She shows you how to calculate stitch counts, fitting as you go. Then you're ready to learn crazy lace, the easiest lace knitting ever! You'll learn a cool creative approach that teaches you "lace logic" and makes lace knitting fun instead of intimidating. Along the way, you'll pick up great techniques like the crochet cast-on and bind-off, magic loop knitting, shaping with ribbing, and fun details like bell sleeves and buttonholes. Make your sweater short or long, lacy or plain, in fingering weight or bulky yarn, in one pattern or "sampler style." You'll finish this class with a new set of skills, a cardigan and a fan bolero!
