Aug 6th - Sept 24th
You're invited to join our new Sweater Club that meets on Tuesday afternoons from 2-4pm, beginning August 6th. Our first sweater knit-along will be Marie Greene's new pattern, Foxtrot. It's a top-down, raglan sleeve cardigan, knit in one piece (no seams), and features a pretty lace pattern in the body.
Superwash wool is recommended for this sweater, and we stock two of the recommended yarns: Malabrigo Rios and Berroco Ultra Wool. Rios is a beautifully hand-dyed merino wool from Peru that comes in a wide range of colors. We also love Ultra Wool and have a number of samples in the shop for you to see how well it works up and washes.
You can purchase and download the pattern on Ravelry. Go to Patterns and type in Foxtrot.
We'll be casting on Aug 6th, but you are welcome to begin any time, especially knitting your gauge swatch. (Instructions are in the pattern.) We'll be taking a leisurely 8 weeks to knit the sweater, which is pretty reasonable, and we'll all have new sweaters to wear when cool weather arrives.
All eight of these Sweater Club meetings are free when you purchase the yarn for our current project at The Yarn Maven. If you decide to use stash yarn or yarn purchased elsewhere, you may join this session of the Sweater Club for just $60.
