Preparation:

Please knit a gauge swatch in stockinette that measures at least 5” x 5” and block. If you don’t get gauge, please re-swatch in adjusted needle size until your gauge matches the pattern gauge. Students should also bring in a sweater they currently own (doesn’t need to be a hand knit) that fits the way they would like their finished sweater to fit.
