According to Isabell Kraemer, Humulus (the botanical name for hops) is a lovely sweater that celebrates the elegant hop flower, its flavors, and its decorative qualities. The plant is described variously as zesty, piney, earthy, and floral. This sweater encompasses all of these with its delicate colorwork pattern knitted in a warm and slightly rustic yarn. It is like being wrapped in a hug.
The Humulus is a great first colorwork sweater. It is worked from the top down so no sewing! You will learn both German short row shaping and colorwork. Using a worsted weight yarn, we have lots of yarns and colors to choose from! The yarn, needles, and pattern are additional. This class starts on September 20th. We have a daytime (1-3 pm) or evening (6-8 pm) class for your convenience. The class meets for two weeks in a row to help get you started and then gives you a couple of weeks to get your project moving along before the last class.
Not sure if you can knit this? Have you knit in the round? Maybe a hat? Cheryl is very patient but there is some homework between classes. You will love to see it as your sweater progresses. And sweaters are not that intimidating, especially when you have help from A Piece of Ewe Yarn Store!
Other knitting classes are available as well. You can choose from all of them here.
