Product Description

Want to know how to combine different yarns to knit your own unique bohemian sweater that you can wear as a beach cover-up or with jeans or a sundress? Join this project class and make the versatile and highly customizable Kits Kimono cardigan that looks great on everyone!

In this class you will get help choosing yarns in the store to combine with worsted or aran weight yarns you may already have in your stash. You will learn how to knit your gauge swatch and how to choose the order of yarns you are combining. In subsequent classes you will learn how to seam your garment pieces together, how to pick up stitches and knit the collar, as well as finishing your sweater with a fringe or other features of your choosing. Urban Yarns Point Grey has two versions of the sweater on display, one in brights and one in neutrals, so come try them on and imagine the possibilities!

The pattern is normally only available by purchasing the book Khatsahlano at Urban Yarns, however a print copy of the Kits Kimono pattern is included in the class price and will be handed out at the first class. If you would prefer to buy the whole book, we will credit you $6 off the class.
