But, just like any life challenge, if you break the large task into small manageable ones, you can start knitting sweaters like a pro!

From reading the pattern and swatching, to knitting through finishing, Tabetha is going to be with you the entire way!

We’ll work through the included pattern, Flannery, a raglan sweater, together, and by the time we’re done, you’ll learn all the special tips and tricks needed to make just about any sweater you can dream up.
