Regular price

The Wandering Flock's First Sweater Club is looking for members! If you are looking to knit your first (or second) sweater and want to do it in company, we’re here for you. With Geraldine and Serena of The Wandering Flock, the FSC will meet and make Jessie Mae's Cozy Classic Raglan together! In the process, we will walk you through how to break down a pattern, gauge swatch, pick your yarn, and choose the best fit for your comfort and style. By the end, you will have the tools to complete a garment for yourself–and a gaggle of supporters who are in it with you (:

Please note that while we will be sharing techniques and tips in making a sweater from top to bottom, this class does not teach you how to knit. Club members should already know about casting on, knitting and purling, increasing and decreasing, knitting in the round, and basic stitch patterns (e.g. rib and stockinette). We welcome anyone who is excited about the challenge of making a sweater, who wants to practice reading patterns, who wants to learn how to tweak or make small customizations to patterns, and above all who is excited to cheer others on!

All meetings will be held virtually over Zoom in EST and in English. We will have closed captioning provided by Zoom. Meetings will be recorded and made available to FSC members.

Membership Price covers: meetings, access to meeting recordings, cost of pdf pattern (provided), The Wandering Flock's basic sweater tool set and a small graduation gift mailed to you <3

You do not have to make your sweater in The Wandering Flock yarn, but your membership grants you a small discount if you do decide to do it!
