This get-together is less class...and more a knitting support group where we all make the same thing. A Little Knitty will provide tips and tricks as we go, but there is no structured class work (except the first day where we measure our gauge and our bodies!) This gathering is all about accountability and cheerleading...and we can't wait to see your finished sweater!!! You will need to purchase the pattern on your own and bring it to the meetings (either printed or digital on a device)

Meeting Dates:
Sun, July 16th 1pm to 3pm - Mandatory Meeting - Bring your gauge swatch
Sun, July 30th 1pm to 3pm
Sun, Aug 13th 1pm to 3pm
Sun, Aug 27th 1pm to 3pm
Sun, Sep 10th 1pm to 3pm
Sun, Sep 24th 1pm to 3pm

It's ok if you can't make all of the dates (except for the first), the price is actually based on 4 meeting times...but we know the summer is BUSY so there are extra sessions built in knowing  you might miss one or two! Also, this sweater is more knitting than we have done in the past, so we just need more time to get it done!


Ever since the release of Shifty, 4 years ago, I’ve had requests for a cardigan version. I am so thrilled to finally be able to bring this wee cardi to life! The shifting colors and fun texture will keep you knitting “just one more row!” all the way to the end, and it is sure to be one of the most eye-catching pieces in your wardrobe! This sweater is knit from the top down, in the round, using stranded colorwork. It is knit seamlessly and then steeked.

These are just approximations. Total yarn usage will depend on the yarn you use (fiber content, ply, etc.), your personal gauge, and any modifications you may make.

For this sweater I chose Spincycle’s Dyed in the Wool, their enchanting, slow color-shifting 2-ply, sport weight which is an effortless way to bring WOW to this cardi! I have steeked many sweaters with DITW, but if you are worried about steeking with a superwash yarn, you can swap in their non-superwash base Nocturne with great results.
