Join us for A Weekend with THE WEEKENDER!
Nautical Yarn and Ludington area B&B's have created a relaxing weekend getaway that combines knitting, great food and time with friends! Join the talented team at Nautical Yard April 6-8, 2018 where they'll teach a class on Andrea Mowry's "The Weekender" sweater.
Friday evening, April 6: Nautical Yarn will host a brief fitting class with a light pizza and salad dinner. The Weekender is an oversized sweater and doesn't require a lot of fitting, but we will cover the basics of garment fitting. You will also knit and block your swatch to be measured Saturday morning.
Saturday Morning, April 7: We will begin to cover the skills required for the sweater including Tubular cast on. You will be able to cast on the stitches for your sweater and begin work on the bottom hems and body of the sweater.
After lunch on Saturday: We will cover the shoulder shaping skills required including two methods of short-row shaping.
Saturday evening: A knitting dessert reception will be held at The Lamplighter Bed & Breakfast in Ludington. Everyone is invited to enjoy sweets while knitting with your friends!
Sunday Morning, April 8: We will learn two bind-off skills including 3-needle bind-off and Tubular bind-off with Kitchener stitch.
All classes will take place at Nautical Yarn, located at 108 South Rath Avenue in downtown Ludington. The Lamplighter Bed & Breakfast and other participating B&B's are a 2-3 minute drive (or 10-15 minute walk!) to Nautical Yarn.
The Weekender Sweater takes (915/XS, 1015/S, 1130/M, 1265/L, 1520/XXL, 1640/XXXL) yards of worsted weight yarn. Also - size 7, 8 and 9 needles are required, but we suggest you bring sizes 5 through 10 circular needles in 40" length.
