Class - Sea Glass Jumpstart Part 2 - The Making

Sea Glass Jumpstart Part 2 is a special edition of Stephanie's Sweater Ready class seriese that will focus on making the Sea Glass patterns by Wool & Pine.  Any other top down yoke neck sweater, tee, or top would also be an excellent alternative in this class.  If you have interest in taking this class but making another type of sweater, we can probably make that work.  Let us know if you intend to work on something other than one of the Sea Glass patterns.

This is an open format class, you can work on any of the Sea Glass patterns from Wool & Pine.  The goal for this class it to guide you through the trickiest parts of making your Sea Glass project.  The class will include question & answer, tips & tricks, demonstrations, and problem solving assistance with an instructor and limited class size. Class is open to everyone (see minimum skills required below).  You do not need to be participating in the KAL + CAL, but you are certainly welcome to participate in any of the KAL + CAL events as well as the class.  If you don't need a class, but want some camaraderie, check out all of our Sea Glass Gatherings and other happenings here

This class assumes that you have already decided on a size, selected yarn, and done any gauge swatches necessary for gauge (or not - you do you, we can't make you to swatch for gauge if you don't want to).  Need help with picking a size, understanding ease, selecting yarn, and getting gauge? Our Sea Glass Jumpstart Part 1 class will do just that.  Part 1 and Part 2 are designed to work together or be taken as stand alone classes.

Minimum Skills required for Knitters:
  • You must be able to Cast on, knit, purl, and bind off comfortably without assistance.
  • Know knitting terms and abbreviations like - K, P, CO, TBL, PM, BOR.
  • You should know how to read a knitting pattern.
  • Knowledge of increases and decreases is helpful, but not required.
Minimum Skills required for Crocheters:
  • You must be able to Chain and work single crochet rows comfortably without assistance AND without adding or losing stitches on your edges.
  • Know crochet terms and abbreviations like - Ch, sc, skip, BOR.
  • You should know how to read a crochet pattern.
  • Knowledge of increases and decreases is recommended but not required.
Patterns:  Please purchase your selected pattern before class (either on the Wool & Pine website, on Ravelry, or in the store via Ravelry In-Store Purchase).  Bring a print version of your pattern to class with you.  See below for where to get your pattern. 

Materials:  Yarn, needles, hooks, and notions are not provided in class.  Please refer to your selected pattern and size for the necessary materials to complete your project.  Come to class with your yarn(s) wound and ready to use.  We cannot wind yarns during class time.  If you need yarn wound for use in class, please drop it off several days before you need the yarn so that we can wind it before you have class.  These projects are great stash busters.  Use up your stash or get 10% off any yarn purchased at Cloverhill Yarn Shop for your class project.

Pre-Class Homework:
  • Acquire your pattern.
  • Choose a size.
  • Gather your yarn(s).
  • Do any gauge swatches necessary to get gauge.
  • Extra Credit for the Teacher's Pet:  Watch the tutorial videos on Wool & Pines website.  (See your pattern for how to access the videos.)
  • OVER ACHIEVERS: You are allowed to start your neck at home and work as far as you want.
Bring to First Class:
  • A printed copy of your pattern.
  • Your yarn wound in ball(s) and ready to knit or crochet.  (You will probably only need your neck band color for the first class.)
  • Any crochet hooks or knitting needles required for your project.
  • Stitch markers:  a locking ring or safety-pin type to help with counting; a beginning of round marker that is distinguishable from other markers (closed or locking type); plus some extra markers on hand just in case.

What to expect in class:

On the first day of class we'll have introductions, review the projects being made in class, field early questions, and start our neck bands. If time allows we may begin the colorwork and say some words about short rows.  Knitters who are worried about their skills can start with the hat or the mini. (You don't even need to finish them, just use a small project as a playground for experimenting and getting more familiar with what you you are doing.  No commitments.)  Crocheters could also start with a hat or cowl project with a smaller circumference to test their skills with 1x1 colorwork and the nifty seamless join that Wool & Pine shows in their tutorial video.

In general this class is designed to let you move at your own pace.  For both knitters and crocheters, the trickiest bits happen in the first half of the sweater.  We'll have topics and demonstrations repeated in multiple class sessions to you don't need to worry about falling behind.  You will need to work on your project between classes to make progress on your project.  

We expect that you may not be able to make it to every class.  Life happens.  This class spans a long enough time frame, and has enough meetings, that it's ok if you need to miss some classes.  Talk to you instructor so you know what you should try to work on at home so you can be ready for the next class you are able to attend.  That said, class 1 & 2 are pretty important, so don't miss both.  :)

Where to get your Sea Glass Pattern:

  • Wool & Pine - Support the designers directly through their website.  
  • Ravelry (independent purchase) - You will need to print your pattern(s) yourself.  Cloverhill cannot print patterns you have purchased independently on Ravelry.  Ravelry may collect a small portion of the designers' pattern sales. We noticed that Wool & Pine is offering a deal on Ravelry that you can take advantage of - Put 3 or more Wool & Pine patterns in your cart to get 20% off your Wool & Pine patterns.  
  • In-Store Ravelry Purchase - Purchase at Cloverhill and we will print the pattern for you.  You'll also have access through your Ravelry library. If you do not have a ravelry account you will get an email with a link to download a PDF version of the pattern.  

Shop closures due to inclement weather will shift class meetings.  Classes will generally shift dates to the following week. Please provide a good phone number and email when you register for class so that we may contact you due to weather challenges.
