July 12th – Simple Garments – Summer Tops Pt 1


Class Name: Simple Garments – Summer Tops Pt 1

Class Date: Thursday July 12th

Class Hours: 10:00am – 12:00pm

Instructor: Terry King

Class Cost: $35.00 per 2 hr session or $90 for all three sessions

Skill Level: Experienced Beginner and up

Class Description: Summer tops can be a lot faster and lighter weight to knit during these warmer days of summer as well as fun to wear! I have 4 suggestions for patterns but you may choose your own. The only criteria are they need to be simple, without techniques like short rows, provisional cast ons, lace, etc….

Simple Tee by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas (pictured above), a versatile easy knit with instructions for any length from hip to long tunic and cap or longer sleeves. Knit bottom up. Works up in sport or DK weight yarn.

Edie by Isabell Kraemer knit top down with raglan shaping in fingering to sport weight yarn. Louet Euroflax or Juniper Moon Zooey would be too good choices. Could also be knit in a wool or cotton.

#283 Top Down Scoop Neck Tee by Diane Soucy A great choice for your first top! Works up in a DK weight yarn.

Class will start Thursday July 12th and run every other Thursday for a total of three – 2 hr classes.

  • Pattern: one of the 3 listed above or your choice of pattern
  • yarn for your chosen pattern (I will be happy to help you select your yarn)

Please see each individual pattern for materials needed for the other tops. I will be happy to help you select an appropriate yarn.
