An easy first garment 'cause we all get soooooo sick of scarves! Simple pullover sweater - your choice of yarn and needle size. Easy k2p2 rib, seamless stockinette, basic T-shape crew, roll-neck or turtle-neck. Bottom-up, no arm or sleevecap shaping, pick-up tapered sleeves to knit top-down. Expect to almost finish the garment in class. Level 2.
