Sinister Catdigan/ Dogdigan Sweater
$65 + Supplies

This sweater is just the cat’s meow (or dog’s woof)!
Knit in the round from top down you will have colorwork knitting as well as steeking to cut open the cardigan at the end. No fear, it’s really a simple process.

There is knitting prep for this class that you will need at least 2 weeks to complete, get signed up soon & I will contact you with prep instructions.

This sweater involves A LOT of knitting so classes are spread a month apart.
You will have the choice of working the steeked cardigan or the pullover version.

I am converting it to a bulky version as well, currently working on the translation.
