Knitting your own sweater is easier — and more fun — than you may think! Discover the basics as you knit alongside expert Caddy Melville Ledbetter to create a cute, cozy cardigan step by step.
Meet Caddy and begin class with a brief overview of your project: an oversized open-front cardigan. You'll learn how to choose the right size for your sweater, and how to make and measure a gauge swatch in the basket rib stitch pattern.
Start your sweater by knitting the back piece. Cast on and knit the ribbing, then start working the basket rib pattern. You'll see how to balance the binding and work in the pattern to shape the shoulders.
Work the right front of your sweater by casting on and knitting the ribbing. Caddy shows you how to use decreasing stitches to shape the neck and shoulders for a stylish look.
