Beekeeper Cardigan



Beekeeper Cardigan

The Beekeeper is a fun knit and a great first sweater for the beginner knitter. This class will focus on the essential top-down construction that hosts a sweet texture of the honeycomb pattern and “little bees” throughout. 

Students will learn how to manage increases and decreases, knit in the round, read stitches, repair mistakes, and wash and block their bee-utiful new cardigan!
