Tell us about it!
Katy has had a few people ask lately about their first sweater. With more than 18,000 worsted weight matches on Ravelry, picking a pattern can be a daunting task. Luckily for you Katy and Amanda have knit a few basic sweaters in the past few years and have spent just a few hours scouring Ravelry for just the right pattern for their chosen yarn. Below is a list of patterns that are a great start for your sweater making adventures! Which one is your favorite? Have you added one to your queue already?Tell us all about it!
These four are totally doable sweaters! Let us know if we can help you. Classes can be designed just for you, or check out some of Katy's up coming sweater classes in Northwest Arkansas!
I can't believe its been more than 2 years since we have been able to record a video chat. Amanda and I got up early and sat down to spend a little quality time with you!Below are the links to the patterns and yarns we discuss in the video. Also check out Amanda's amazing hand sewn on badges!
