Learn to Knit Curriculum
Meet Your Teacher
Carol trained initially as a textile artist and then as a structural engineer. While both of these backgrounds are very different the influences can be seen in her design work which is well-shaped, flattering to wear and enjoyable to knit.
She strives to design clothing with a difference: not overly complex, but still giving a very unique end product. She likes to work with different construction methods, so long as they enhance the knitting experience and make for a more intuitively put-together knitted item.
Carol has been widely published in books and magazine and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fibre festivals. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customisation right through to short rows and colourwork. In her classes you'll move from learning the basics to refining your knitting skills and fixing problems.
The gentle cable wave flows down the front and back of this sweater to create a beautiful central panel. The construction of this sweater is a little bit different and will keep you guessing every step of the way!
You begin with the central panels and then pick up stitches on the right side so that you can work the front and back in one long piece. You’ll then join the side seam and continue the sleeve right down to the cuff. Once the right side is done, the left is finished in exactly the same way on the other side.
