Join Us at Cast Away + Folk for my CustomFit Sweater Class!



I'll be teaching a knitting class at Cast Away + Folk in Santa Rosa, CA, starting in a couple of weeks. The class uses Amy Herzog's CustomFit program to create a custom knitting pattern to fit your *exact* measurements. So if you've never knit a sweater before (or if you have but it was disappointing because it didn't fit), please consider joining us for this class!

In the class, you'll be measured for your sweater, and then I'll guide you through yarn choices, swatching, ordering your custom pattern (pattern is included with cost of class), and then knitting your perfectly fitting sweater! You can choose any pattern from the CustomFit database, and then personalize it as you'd like. The patterns you can choose from include cardigans, pullovers, and even lightweight options suitable for spring and summer. Sleeve length, hem length, neckline... all are customizable!

This class runs for five weeks. The first class is on Tuesday, 4/5, from 6–8pm (the following four classes are all during the same time, one week apart... Dates are on the class page). The class is $125, which doesn't include yarn; you'll need to purchase your yarn from Cast Away, and Justine from the shop will help us with yarn choices.

This class is for advanced beginners or intermediate level knitters. You'll need to know how to knit, purl, cast on, bind off, increase, decrease, and how to work a seam. I'll be there to help you work through the tough parts, so don't let those scare you. :)

If you live near Sonoma County, CA, I hope you'll join me next month at Cast Away!
