Event description
Learn to knit this wildly fun self striping top! Perfect for intermediate or adventurous knitters that want to make a statement.

About this event

This fun unique pattern is part of our favorite book on self striping, Knit Happy With Self-Striping Yarn by Stephanie Lotven (Telly Bean Knits).

Each student will be required to have their own copy of the book for the class. You can purchase the book through our sister shop, Two Rivers Bookstore.

Bright Axis is worked from the bottom up, in the round then the self-striping portion is knit with side to side construction for a drop shoulder effect. You'll learn short row shaping, garment construction elements and seaming techniques.

This is a 4 session class. The first class will be an hour long session to discuss the pattern and decide on your size and yarn choices. There will be a two week break until the second session so you can work up the first section of the pattern, a joyful easy stockinette. The next 3 sessions will be weekly 2hr classes and focus on all the exciting bits - the shaping, joining your contrast yarn, adding customizations and finishing.

RECOMMENDED LEVEL:

Intermediate or adventurous beginner - Must know how to knit in the round. Recommended that you have knit a sweater or other garment in the past but it is not a requirement.
