Have you been searching for a fun sweater project for the new year?  Join our Study Group sweater class and learn how to customize your own sweater to your unique style and fit.  Students should be familiar with knit and purl stitches and basic increasing and decreasing methods.  Techniques covered in the class: tubular cast-on, knitting intarsia flat, shaping with German short rows, and mattress stitch seaming.  You will need to purchase Jen Parrocini's pattern from Ravelry and have a swatch complete by the first day of class.  By Bethanie Halsey.
