Top Down and All Around with Barry Klein
Learn the basic techniques for knitting from the top down. We will jump right in and start working on a small sweater which might fit a 1-year-old or Teddy Bear. During the class, we will talk about variations, different techniques, and different ways to knit from the top down. Barry will cover various increases, yarn selection, a bit of math and more. When class is over, you will have a partially complete sample with the elements complete so you can understand the full process, potential, and you will be ready to design a top-down sweater from scratch using your measurements.
