It’s SWEATA WEATHA! We know the snow, rain, ice & cold temps are going to inspire us to churn out sweaters like a sweatshop factory. We don’t want you to be left behind! This short-rowing & asymmetrical sweater by Veera Valimaki was inspired by the art of breathing, something we rarely really pay attention to. This seamless sweater is worked from top down with raglan yoke and the asymmetric shaping makes it a very stylish and at the same time very easy to wear. This 4-session class will be taught by Yarnista & Owner Susan Dickerson and will be held:
- 1 to 3 pm Wednesdays, Jan. 16 & 30, March 13 & 27
- 1 to 3 pm Fridays, March 8 & 22 and April 5 & 19.
