Knit romantic cabled knit sweaters. Bring your own favorite pattern or pick one of Countrywool's originals. Learn to make a custom fit sweater starting with the sleeves or with a gauge hat to ensure accurate fit. Knit seamlessly with little finishing using a circular needle and double pointed needles. If you can knit, purl, count and cable, you can make this sweater!  Knitters returning from an older class for a refresher are most welcome :)
