Description: In this class 3 hour class Laura introduces you to the “Novus” construction, her seamless yet structured modern aproach to the side-to-side sweater. She’ll cover how the construction works, how to modify the construction to fit your body, any necessary skills needed for the construction (i.e. provisional cast on, lifted increases, German short rows), and how to plug a stitch pattern or motif into it. (To see examples of this construction, check out her Vindur and Novus Jacket patterns!)Then we’ll discuss choosing yarn to knit your sweater and cast on for a sleeve. By the end of class you’ll be ready to independently knit your own sweater from the collection.

Skill Level: Knit/purl; comfort reading a pattern; best for knitters who have knit a sweater before OR are adventurous first time sweater knitters.

Homework: None

Tools Needed: DK or worsted weight yarn (this is just for swatching/learning techniques, not for your sweater), Size 6 – 8 needles

We will be spending a fair amount of time talking about yarn choices, and then choosing yarn to audition for your sweater. Please don’t purchase yarn ahead of time unless you are sure you know what you want to use!

Materials Fee: None
