Sweater Club

Whether you aree a beginning knitter or advanced, consider joining Sweater Club at Rita Mae's! You will have an opportunity to hone your skills and create a beautiful, well-fitted sweater for yourself or to give to a friend or family member. Our Sweater Club is an ongoing event - with a new sweater pattern added quarterly. 
Our Sweater Club is led by Cathy Briscoe, a professional instructor with many years of experience. We believe there is no substitute for learning and receiving guidance from an experienced instructor while surrounded by others with the same passion as you. 
Q4 Sweater Club

In the first 3 quarters of sweater club we have knit sweaters using 4 different construction techniques, 3 top down seamless variations, Contiguous in On the Beach by  Isabell Kraemer, Yoke style in the Throwback by Andrea Mowry, which also included color-work, and in the 3rd quarter the option to knit Standard top down Raglan in the Dark & Stormy by Thea Coleman  or a traditional seamed sweater in the Casual Cardigan by Amanda Lilley both of which incorporated cabling. 

This quarter, we will choose from the designs of Amy Herzog as published The Ultimate Sweater Book. Her book is a wonderful resource offering something for all skill levels.  The book is divided in four parts containing sizing charts and instructions for; creating your own designs, sweater "recipes" for the more timid who are not quite ready to jump into designing from scratch, but would like to add some embellishments, and for the very timid detailed patterns for those who just want an easy to follow pattern. 

You can choose any of the patterns in the book. If you are new to the sweater club, or may have missed one of the quarters,  you may want to choose one of the patterns from a previous quarter.  This quarter will be a great opportunity to build your confidence and grow your knitting skills.
