Never sewn with knits?  Find them a little scary and daunting?  In this class you’ll learn all the basics of sewing with knit fabrics as you make yourself an awesome, swishy circular cardigan out of knit fabric.

Working with Leimomi’s circular cardigan pattern you’ll learn how to sew knit fabrics so they move with you, set a knit sleeve in the round, sew darts in knit, as well as two different ways to bind a circular cardigan.

The cardigan pattern comes in three Circle Sizes, from a Small Circle bolero-look cardigan, to the full, swishing Large Circle cardigan shown.

This class is suitable for most sewing levels, from anyone with basic sewing experience (you must be comfortable using a sewing machine and able to cut and sew precisely and handle fabrics), to more advanced sewers who haven’t worked with knit fabrics.  One of the two binding finishes is significantly harder, and may not be suitable for all students.

Level:  Advanced Beginner.  Students should be completely comfortable threading a sewing machine and making simple items (bags, cushion covers, pyjamas, etc.).  This class is a good follow-up class to Absolute Beginners Sewing.

Materials: Students must supply their own fabric: a materials list will be provided on registration.

Cost: $110 (includes the pattern).

Teacher:  This class is taught by our awesome sewing expert Joanna Morris.

To register for the class (or to inquire about any class), please email Leimomi with your name, a contact number and the name of the class you’d like to be in as the subject line.
