The MadMen Look: Knitting a Vintage Sweater
The Stitch Niche, off Nicholasville Rd.
Fall 2010

This several weeks long course will take you through this project from beginning to end.  Every few weeks we will meet to check progress, discuss upcoming steps, answer questions and provide inspiration.  If you have ever wanted to knit a vintage sweater, but were frightened off by the weird sizes and a miniscule gauge, this is the place to start!  This sweater is knit in Sport Weight yarn (not fingering!), and is simple but results in a distinctive style.  Contact The Stitch Niche for further information.
