🧶 Gramercy Park Video KAL (Knit-Along) 🧶

Gramercy Park 2
It’s here! Our latest sweater knit-along features one of my existing patterns: Gramercy Park is an elegant, all over lace garment that is perfect for the spring.

With FOUR yarn choices, there will be a yarn for every price point and fiber preference.

This video sweater class will be full of great tips and tricks from a mini class on yarn substitution, to lace tricks and fixes and all your seaming videos. With sweater modifications, knitting how-to’s and hours of videos you will be able to make your perfect sweater.  Change up the size, the length, the neck shaping, the sleeves–you name it!

This will be the first class hosted on my brand new education site! Learn more below.
