Wonderful Wallaby 2018

“Fun Size” Wallaby

A child’s size 2 is featured for this class.

Never knit a sweater before? Or want to know what a Wallaby is, exactly?

Now’s your chance to learn a lot about sweater knitting!

The Wonderful Wallaby by Cottage Creations is an exceedingly popular and a well established favorite of knitters everywhere. Why? It’s a hoodie before hoodies were cool. It’s a very comfortable sweatshirt-styled sweater.

Knit along with us and learn the following skills:

  • Placing the pouch
  • Fusing the pouch
  • Attaching sleeves
  • Raglan shaping
  • Placing life lines
  • Kitchener stitch

Along with tips and tricks to make knitting your Wallaby a lot of fun!

Requirements: Cottage Creations pattern, The Wonderful Wallaby (yarn requirements and materials are listed for you, in the pattern)

Homework is required before the first class! Please swatch for your sweater, if you want the Fun Size we’re knitting, to be a size 2. Start your sweater body and finish the ribbing. Switch to larger needles, and knit the (one) increase round, but STOP! Do not proceed any farther. We shall learn how to place the pouch more easily than the pattern describes!

If you don’t know anyone who would wear the smallest size we’re knitting in class, please let us send it to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation as the need for warmth is great on the plains of the Dakotas. More info at https://friendsofpineridgereservation.org/
