Simple Sweaters: Stranded & Steeked

with Amy Detjen
Simplify stranded colorwork to knit striking sweaters you'll wear with glee! Find out how fun and friendly stranded colorwork sweaters are when Amy Detjen is your guide.

Alongside beloved knitting instructor Amy Detjen, stranded colorwork will work for you! During Amy's class, you'll get comfortable knitting a colorwork hat before you succeed at knitting an approachable stranded colorwork cardigan or pullover pattern. Along the way, you'll receive Amy's expert tips for tangle-free two-handed knitting and keeping your tension even. Find out how to trap your floats so the back of your work stays neat and tidy, and learn to add in new colors and weave in ends as you go. Then, Amy will walk you through knitting your sleeves, and if you so choose, shaping a V-neck, and steeking your V-neck and armholes with confidence. You'll attach your sleeves, finish your edges beautifully and weave in ends, and your dazzling colorwork sweater is done!

Praise for Amy Detjen's Custom Yoke Sweater:

"Custom Yoke Sweater with Amy Detjen is a top-of-the-line knitting class on Craftsy. This class is just like you invited Amy over for brunch & she decided to teach you to knit a sweater. Her manner & delivery are wonderful. I felt like she was talking to me (not at me) through the entire class. She has taken a technique/pattern that intimidates many people and made it seem so simple. When you finish the class you will be amazed that you ever doubted yourself.

The class is suitable for nearly every level of knitter. If you are fairly inexperienced, she explains things in a very down to earth, easily understandable manner. If you are a more experienced knitter, the class is worth the price just for all the tips, tricks & techniques you will pick up."
