I’m so happy to announce another live class in the US!
On Monday, Sept 9th we’ll start to knit the Spring Plumage cardigan in
Granby CO, at Lonesome Stone Alpacas, Natural Fiber Mill, and Yarn.
The class is for intermediate knitters.
You don’t need any prior knowledge in Swing-Knitting™ to knit the Spring Plumage cardigan!
From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (including breaks) we will understand the construction of the cardigan, and we’ll knit the first feather and triangle together.

Necessary yarn and needles for the project (depending on your size, select yarn and needles to obtain the gauge) :
600-700g Worsted weight solid yarn
350-430g Worsted weight variegated yarn
2 circular knitting needles 4.5 mm = US 7 (or fitting yarn and gauge), at least 100 cm (40 in) long
18 stitches and 36 rows (=18 garter ridges) = 10 x 10 cm (4 x 4 in) in garter stitch using MC (US#7)
You can easily use different yarns with a different gauge. According to the pattern, the raglan cardigan fits sizes 8 to 18 comfortably in the shoulders. During its construction, you can try on and adjust the Spring Plumage to fit your size. The sizes differ in the front panels by how much they overlap.
