Want to work on a project with other knitters through the dreariest month of winter?

Get support, camaraderie and joy while knitting Caitlin Hunter's beautiful Briar and Brambles sweater.  Jody will be your touch stone for 8 consecutive Sundays as your project grows; answering any questions and guiding you through any confusion.  This could be your first sweater or your seventeenthousandth, either way you'll spend two hours of each week with people who speak your language and love your craft!

Whether you choose to leave off the embroidery or add it on when you're done, Meryl will be on hand the last Sunday of the KAL to help you with your wool tattooing needs.

Skill level: MUST be able to cast on, knit and purl in the round, cast off and use either double pointed needles or magic loop.  Basic understanding of pattern reading is strongly encouraged.


This is not a class, it is an opportunity to work on a project alongside other knitters with a teacher on hand in the event of questions or issues during your knitting process.

PLEASE KNIT A SWATCH BEFORE THE FIRST MEET-UP (if you need help picking a size to knit, this will enable Jody to best assist you!)

Note- You should always knit your swatch the same way that the pattern is knit—in this case, in the round. Block your swatch as you will your finished garment and allow it to dry fully before measuring.


Please be sure to have your supplies in hand before the first session!
