Loved This Class!!!

I've been knitting for a few years, and up to this point had made scarves, cowls, a hat, and a pair of mittens. Having decided that it was time to make the leap to a sweater, I was so happy to find this Craftsy course. The instructions were clear and easy, and the instructions guided me from swatch to finish. When I had a question, she was quick to answer. My sweater is beautiful, if I do say so myself!

I Used A Different Yarn

I like the style of the sweater and I like the eggplant colored yarn, but I get bored super-easily, and kept stopping working on my sweater and picking up another knitting project.

From Zero to Cardigan in One Class!

I can't recommend this class enough! I took a basic knitting course previously but I didn't have the wherewithal to start my first knitting project until I decided to make the cardigan in this class.

I love the class. I have completed one sweater at the end of 2014, and finishing my next for 2015. I must admit that I am not a beginner knitter, but a learned a lot from this class. I love the cast-on, it creates a very neat edge every time. I learned to decrease and shape, to add the button band, and collar.
