JP Knits has done it again! The Classic LBD Tee will be a wardrobe favorite for years to come.  Looking for a summer knit project? This is it!

This beauty is knit in the round from the top down. The pattern offers several features to increase your skill level. The pattern is generous with sizes from upper chest 28 to 65.25 inches.  

Session 1: Getting started.  We will spend sufficient time reviewing the pattern, discussing key features and ensuring an understanding of the terms in the pattern and the stitches used.  We will measure and discuss fit, size, yarn, and needle choice and knit a swatch and determine proper needle size.

Session 2:  After finalizing the size and discussing any adjustments that may need to be made to your knit we will jump right in with cast on and ensuring that all is well with the increases.  While working the project we will conduct an additional pattern review and understand how to use the charts as a guide. 

One week break between Session 2 and 3

Session 3:  Session three is focused on shaping the body and raglan sleeves and joining the work for knitting in the round.  We will tackle the outstanding questions and tricky points in the instructions.

Session 4: Knit, knit, knit. For those who have chosen to add darts to your garment, we will work on the German Short rows and discuss any additional techniques needed. For those not adding darts, lets learn those short rows anyway!  In preparing for our final session we will discuss all things finishing.

Session 5: Picking up stiches for finishing the collar and sleeves. Cast off discussion. Celebrate the beauty you have created to date. 

It is not anticipated that the garment will be completed in five sessions, however you will know what you need to know to confidently complete. Additional assistance is available each Wednesday evening.
