The Sweater with Kathleen Dames

Over the course of each 12-week season, we will knit a sweater together. I'll share my favorite tips and techniques to improve your knitting, whether you're working on our current sweater or not. For Season Four we are knitting Enwreathed Pullover. Be sure to sign up for the newsletter. Visit http://www.kathleendames.com/thesweater for details. Thanks for joining me, and happy knitting! xoxo, Kathleen

Blocking! Today I’m doing it with the help of my washing machine (I know - I’m the luckiest New Yorker to have a machine in my apartment!). I do believe that blocking takes your knitted item from homemade to handcrafted, so don’t skip this step. If you still have questions about blocking your sweater, ask in the Ravelry forum: http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/kathleen-dames-design/topics/3552356

 

If you haven’t already, visit http://www.kathleendames.com/thesweater to sign up for the newsletter and get your free Basic Cable pattern*. Your link to download the PDF will be in your Welcome email. Be sure to create your project page on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basic-cable-2

 

Thanks for being here, and happy knitting!

xoxo, Kathleen

P.S. Share your project on social media with hashtags #kdsweater and #basiccable
