Students will choose a pattern from any source such as Ravelry or perhaps a knitting book that calls for worsted weight yarn. The yarn and needles (if necessary) can be purchased either before class starts or the first night of class. The class format will be a workshop. Students will be grouped based on the style of sweater. Students may work at their own pace, but I will give them target dates so that they will get the most out of the lesson topics.
