Chunky Bamboo Stitch Top-Down Jumper – Four-Part Knit Along (starts 01.09.22 )

£50.00

STARTING THURSDAY 1st SEPTEMBER 2022, 6:30pm – 9:00pm

The popularity of ‘Top-Down’ knits has grown enormously over the past few years as knitters realise the benefits of creating garments with no seams and the ease of making adjustments to size!
If you have ever wanted to give the technique a try, this is the workshop for you. Over the course of four sessions, Truro Wool’s knitting expert, Julie Cowan, will guide you through all of the steps to make this simple and stylish jumper. The pattern, designed by Julie specifically for this workshop, is knitted on circular needles using the ‘Top-Down’ and ‘In The Round’ methods and features a Raglan sleeve. Additional features are the decorative Bamboo stitch borders at the neckline, cuffs and a deep band at the bottom of the body making this garment flattering for all shapes.

Whether you are a novice knitter wanting to ‘crack’ that first garment or perhaps an experienced knitter that has not previously tried the ‘Top-Down’ technique, by the end of this four-part course you will have a range of new skills in your toolkit, providing you with the freedom to pick up other ‘Top Down’ projects with confidence.
