This class is perfect for intermediate knitters who are ready to tackle garment knitting and colorwork in the round. Amy explains Elizabeth Zimmermann's "key number" system to adjust fit and adds techniques made famous at Meg Swansen's Knitting Camp. As you knit the included pullover sweater pattern, you'll learn how to trap stranded colorwork neatly, customize your sweater pattern with easy knitting math, and select the right colors and patterns for your yoke. Amy's irreverent sense of humor makes even the picky parts fun!

The included Sipsey's Folly pullover sweater knitting pattern is sized from women's Small to 4X (bust 37" to 61" or 94 to 155 cm). An alternative Gardener's Folly yoke pattern is also included.
