Has crocheting a garment been on your project bucket list for a while but getting the right fit was a concern? Many sweaters have set in sleeves and require what seems like miles of seaming! Now, in this all-new class, Lena has designed the perfect first-time garment by eliminating those barriers.

The Uptown Girl Cardigan is a beautiful design that will flatter all figures. With the top-down construction, there are NO seams to deal with and the attractive yoke provides a no-shoulder-seam solution. Everyone can make this pattern as it is sized from small to 5X. It will certainly become your go-to sweater!

In this class you'll learn how to:
  • Determine gauge and the size that is just right for you...
  • Work Front and Back Post stitches to create the pretty neck edge and ribbing...
  • Create the Yoke, ending with the fascinating Star Stitch Band...
  • Divide the yoke and cleverly form the armholes...
  • Customize the body and sleeve lengths to fit you perfectly...
  • Crochet the sweet picot edging...
  • And, make the charming crocheted buttons.
This class includes complete step-by-step instructions for the Uptown Girl Cardigan.
