Knit Your First Sweater



Are you daunted by the idea of knitting a sweater, but always wanted to try? If you know how to knit and purl, have completed small knitting projects, and can read a basic pattern, then this is the class for you.

We will knit the Flax sweater from Tin Can Knits. It is a beginner-friendly, seamless, top-down pattern that comes in a variety of sizes ranging from baby to adult 6XL. Knit the sweater for yourself or someone else. It also has fun sleeve detail and two length options.

Flax is knit in worsted weight yarn so will knit up quickly. The pattern is free either through Ravelry or directly from Tin Can Knits. Check out their app and view the instructions for your specific size!
