The Winters Beach Cardi by Andrea Mowry is a beautiful cabled cardigan that is knit from the bottom up. Once the body is knit to the shoulders, the sleeves are picked up and knit in. It also has pockets done as afterthought pockets. This lovely open cardi will be your go-to winter sweater!
In this class you will encounter all sorts of fun techniques such as the cable cast-on, 3-needle bind-off, and cables (with or without a cable needle), as well as basic knitting skills such as knit, purl, increases and decreases. You should have a good comfort level with knitting basics, be familiar with charts (or ready to learn!), and be familiar with basic sweater construction.
