*Students receive 10% off any supplies purchased for the class.
Prior to the start of the first class, knitters should work the pattern up to the point where the cabling begins. Specifically: on page 5 of the pattern, follow the instructions to cast on, work the ribbing, work the increase round, and knit the first 3 rounds of the cable chart. The pattern suggests a twisted rib pattern, but you can do a simply 1x1 rib if you prefer. Drop by the shop sometime before the first class if you need help starting the project!
