In this class we will use the Strange Brew Fair Isle sweater recipe from Tin Can Knits to make an heirloom quality colorwork sweater. You choose your own colorwork motif, and Strange Brew has done the math for you! We will learn how to construct a top-down round yoked sweater, master Fair Isle colorwork, and dabble in short row shaping, and finish it all by Christmas!
