Top Down Sweater

Description: This class is designed for the knitter who would like to familiarize themselves with the techniques associated in knitting a garment from the top as opposed to the "traditional" method of bottom up. Some of the key concepts include flexible cast on and bind off methods, instructions for double increases and mirrored decreases. Previous experience in knitting garments is not required, although may be helpful. To keep the quantity of knitting manageable, only baby/toddler sizing is offered. However, techniques covered will easily translate into other garments.
Supplies: Three colors of a worsted weight yarn approximately 85 (100, 120, 145) yds of the two main colors and 40 (45, 50, 60) yds of the contrasting color, 6.0 mm (US #10) circulars (16" - 24"), 6.0 mm (US #10) DPN (set of 5), 6.0 mm (US #J) or larger crochet
Homework:
Duration: 2 hours per session, 4 sessions
