Have you ever wanted to try your hand at making a beautiful Gansey Sweater, but felt overwhelmed and nervous of the commitment to making an entire sweater?  This cushion cover project is the perfect intro into the "Art" of the Gansey Sweater.  This class will be broken up into 3 sessions;

 

Session 1: Cable cast-on, button holes, reading and understanding a chart.

Session 3:  I-cord cast-off, seaming, and finishing.

 

For this lesson we will also be offering 1-hour drop-in help sessions if needed on May 17th & 31st (2:30-3:30).

"Really, all you need to become a good knitter are wool, needles, hands, and slightly below-average intelligence.  Of course, superior intelligence, such as yours and mine, is an advantage."
