From the time when every stitch told a story to the present, a Fisherman's sweater is one of the most enduring garments on record... Explore this most intriguing and decorative sweater style translated into a modern shape.

As we who've learned at grandma's knees know, one of the most satisfying aspects of knitting is its bond to all the knitters who've gone before. We'll reach back through the decades and reveal cherished connections – the enchanting stitch patterns, the community, the stories told THEN bring that kindred fabric into our current craft.

Join us to make a contemporary version of a beloved sweater style. This class will explore:
  •  A short history of the Fisherman Sweater
  •  Overview of classic stitch patterns & the Gansey
  •  How traditional construction translates into contemporary shapes
  •  Techniques to customize a sweater with signature Fisherman stitch patterns (including chart reading & making) as part of a modern garment
