Remember a couple weeks back when I talked about going to Denver to make a class with Craftsy?
It’s ready!!! I’m so excited!
The class is The Seamless Artemisia Sweater, and features a top-down, seamless set-in sleeve construction, knit-in pockets, hourglass waist shaping, and a delicate lace panel at the neckline.
Students are beginning to enroll (and my brain is amazed by how many people want to take my class right away. Seriously, WOW.), and I’ve been answering student questions already.
I’m in love with the Craftsy class format. As someone who’s been both a teacher and a student in other online class format, this platform is amazing. Easy to navigate and full of features. It’s also making it really easy to keep up with my students to help them quickly and clearly. Plus, once you’re in the class, you’re IN. Replay lessons as often as you need to, they won’t expire. So if life gets hectic, you can come back to class at your own pace. Awesome!
Known for cute, feminine and fashionable sweaters, knitwear designer Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark brings a brand-new design to Craftsy! Worked from the top down, the Seamless Artemisia Sweater features set-in sleeves in the round, knit-in pockets and pretty lace details. Shaping at the back neck, shoulders and waist provide a flattering fit.
As you knit along with Mercedes, you’ll learn her techniques for short-row shaping, knitting in the round, following lace charts and lots of nifty tips and tricks. Choose to knit three-quarter or full-length sleeves, building in as much ease as you like. You’ll finish with a sweater you’ll be pleased to wear or give.
