Apricot Yarn & Supply

Class: Anker's Summer Top

Date

Gorgeous in linen or cotton, the Anker’s top is perfect for life in San Diego – great over a swimsuit for a day at the beach and just as comfortable as a layering piece on breezy nights. This top works up quickly, and the stockinette is effortless to make and wear. If this is your first sweater class with us you are in for a great skill building knit.

As with any sized garment, gauge is important! Students must create swatch(es) prior to class and come prepared to cast on your project with yarn and needles which you used to achieve gauge. Please ask for help with this step at the shop before the class day if you need guidance on swatching.

FOR THE CLASS:

Students should be proficient in the basics of knitting (comfortable knitting, purling, working in the round, and following written directions) before taking this class.
● Meets for 3 sessions, 2 hours each session
● Skill level: adventurous beginner and beyond
● Topics taught in class: basic sweater construction, finishing and care
● Materials: yarn and needles to meet gauge (see pattern for size information), stitch markers, darning
needle, waste yarn
● Pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ankers-summer-shirt

Yarn recommendations: Berocco Zinnia, Quince&Co Willet, Sandnes Garn Line, Araucania Confeti, Berocco Pima Soft
