Neck Down Cardigan Class

CardiganThis is a women's neck down cardigan.  This is one of my favorite sweater patterns.  The sweater is worked seamlessly from the neck down in one piece.  The sleeves can be worked on double points or magic loop.  There is very little finishing required for this sweater.  The pattern is well written, easy to follow and you end up with a great sweater that fits.  I recommend using Plymouth Homestead Tweed yarn which is buttery soft and blocks well.  It is a heavy worsted/Aran weight yarn.  Silver Thimble will be placing an order soon.  If you have a specific color in mind, let Nan know so that your yarn will be available for your pre-class homework.
