*Sweater Club #22 February - March 2024

Join our Sweater Club #22 now! Our knitalongs meet-up in person and give everyone the encouragement to knit a sweater. We're here to help you along the way.

How this works

1) You choose which of the designs you want to make from our pre-selected list. 

When selecting the designs for Sweater Club, we consider knitting trends, techniques used, designer creativity, pattern reliability, and size inclusivity (bust 30" to at least 60"). We feel that the designs we pre-select are sure to please a wide range of people.

2) Sign-up here (select the design option) or in the shop. There is no cost to join.

3) Purchase your yarn at our shop.

4) Purchase your pattern on Ravelry or through our shop.

5) Join our weekly meet-ups for the community and knitting help along the way. 

Meet-ups: Sundays 11am-12noon; beginning February 11 and continuing each week 2/18, 2/25, 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, and 3/24.  Meet-ups are optional so come when you can.

The Designs

For Sweater Club #22 we kept in mind layering for cool days/evenings. Plus you can layer a vest over a t-shirt, button shirt, dress or wear it as a top. You can pretty much wear a vest year round especially if you make one with cotton yarn. And best of all, vests are fast to make - no sleeves! 

For the Knitters:

Lulu Pullover: The Lulu Slipover is worked from the top down. The slipover has a deep armhole and is closed with two buttons along both sides. First, the back is worked and then the front. Ribbing edges are worked along the armholes, and along the sides, which form slits towards the hem, double knitted edges are worked. Two buttonholes are worked along the front part of these double knitted edges. At the end, a ribbing edge is worked along the neck opening. Suggested Gauge: 20 sts/30 rows in stockinette after blocking. Worsted weight yarn. 

Weekend Slipover V-Neck:  The Weekend Slipover V-neck is worked from the top down. First, the back yoke is worked back and forth with the shoulder slope shaped using short rows. Then, each front is worked separately while increases are worked to the shape the V-neckline. Front and back yoke are then joined to form the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle to the hem. The ribbed neck edge and armhole edges are worked at the end. Suggested Gauge: 15 sts/20 rows in stockinette after blocking. Chunky to Bulky yarn.
