While Craig & I were knitting our own Flax pullovers, Kathy was knitting the mini version for the shop. She used Classic Elite’s Liberty Wool, a machine washable worsted wool that comes in an incredibly fun range of colors for kids and adults alike!
Flax is knit in the round from the top down and is sized 6 months through adult, making it a versatile choice for the whole family. If you’ve been thinking about starting your first sweater project, it can be wise to start with a baby size. You learn all the techniques to make an adult sized sweater but in much shorter amount of time!
We love this little Flax so much we’re using it for our Top Down Seamless Baby Pullover class. A new session starts in the next 2 weeks- join us!
Here’s the details- call the shop or stop in to register! You can see our full class schedule here.
