Designed by Jane Richmond, the Clarke Pullover is a cozy, slightly over-sized sweater that is perfect for lazy days around town. Make it in a fun combination of stripes, or go for a more reserved look by working the sweater in a solid colour.
"Knit from the top down and in the round, the Clarke pullover features modern stripes in contrasting shades of denim. This design incorporates positive ease for a comfortable sweater you’ll want to live in. The length is perfect for jeans or shorts, ending in a flattering split hem at the belt-line.The neckline is slightly wider than a crew neck giving this pullover a more casual look and feel."

The three classes are spread over a 5-week period to give you extra knitting time between each class. All aspects of the sweater will be discussed in class, however, completion of the sweater is dependent upon the speed at which you knit.
Please bring a knitted and blocked gauge swatch to the first class. This swatch needs to be worked in the round - a tutorial on how to do this can be found here: http://ysolda.com/blog/2014/6/5/swift-swatching-in-the-round
