Jen's Notes:
- With the cost of the sweater-a-long you get the printed and digital copy of the pattern (well, the digital is already free). 
- YOU MUST BRING A SWATCH TO THE FIRST SESSION YOU ATTEND!!!! 

SWATCHING INSTRUCTIONS
With US7 knitting needles, cast on 26 stitches
Swatch in the round (either see Jen in the shop to explain or watch this video: Swatch Video)
After a few inches of knitting, change to US 8 needles and swatch for a few inches
Lastly, switch to a US9 if you are a tight knitter or a US6 if you are a loose knitter
WRITE DOWN WHAT NEEDLE SIZES YOU USED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bind off your work, wash it (put it in water for 15 min and let is soak up all that water and even out the stitches) then smush the water out and lay flat to dry (don't pin out). If you have ANY questions about this, ask before the first meeting! I want you to arrive with a measurable swatch.
