Have you heard about the Gansey Knitalong that Olive Knits is hosting in January?
Knitters will learn how to knit a traditional seamless gansey sweater during Marie Greene’s 8-week online workshop. Swatching begins the first week of January, casting on by January 7th. The workshop ends the week of February 18th.
Marie Greene’s workshop will include tutorials (photo/video) and additional resources which will arrive via email each Monday during the KAL period. Marie’s extra tools will walk knitters through special techniques (like underarm gussets, shoulder gussets and Russian grafting). Click here for details.
