Elizabeth Sweater

Wednesday Nights 6:00 – 8:00 pm (via Zoom)

Meeting Dates: April 22, May 13 and 27, June 10 and 24 and July 8

Cost: 30.00 (materials NOT included)

knit with worsted weight yarn

Instructor: Diane Thomson


This has been a very popular sweater in the shop for many, many years. It fits all

body types nicely, it looks good in either solid or variegated yarns. It’s perfect for a

class as it is knit side to side with ribbing around the waist. It’s easy, but it’s nice

to have someone holding your hand if you have never knit a sweater side to side.

The fit is nice on all body shapes because the ribbing is sideways so it doesn’t

“grab” your body, but brings the sweater in just a touch in the waist and is very

flattering. Since there are no buttons, it also make it very flattering. Just bring

the sides together and pin it shut or wear it open.
