Fridays in February and March, Knit your first sweater with Hazel. 

Have you always wanted to make a sweater and thought that you were not capable just yet or thought they were just too complicated? Can you knit, purl, knit 2 together, and do a knit front back? Well guess what?? You too can make a sweater! Seriously.

                TinCanKnits knit designs has made an e-Book for FREE on Ravelry as well as some nice schematics and drawings to accompany the patterns. They leave no doubt in your mind how to go about making your very own top-down raglan sleeve sweater. The best part (ok other than the free patterns that are beautiful) is that the patterns come in 17 sizes, from infant all the way to manly size 58 chest size 4XL. So, if you have some babies coming soon or promised the hubby you would make him one when you were capable, then here is your opportunity to come and join Hazel on Friday afternoons for a knit-a-long and together we will make pretty sweaters to be proud of.

More to come, so stay with us on Ravelry and Facebook.
