Bentley Cardigan KAL with Special Guest, Marie Greene of Olive Knits
We’re beyond excited to be hosting our very first guest knitwear designer and instructor, Marie Greene of Olive Knits! Join us for an in-depth workshop on knitting the charming, timeless Bentley Cardigan. Bentley is a vintage-inspired cardigan that features a cropped, boxy shape with texture along the front, solid stockinette on the back and, our favorite detail, 3/4 sleeves with sweet little keyholes at the cuff. Bentley pairs beautifully with jeans and a crisp, collared shirt or over a vintage dress. Whether you choose a color to match your Fluevogs, or simply knit one you know you’ll wear with everything, Bentley is your go-to cardi for in-between seasons and our finicky Central Oregon weather.
We’ll kick this extra special KAL off with a 3-hour workshop lead by Marie Greene in which you’ll learn to choose the right size for your style (and figure), tips and tricks to ensure a great fit, how to avoid common sweater pitfalls and how to work the texture details perfectly for great results. You’ll not only learn how to knit yourself a beautiful Bentley Cardigan, but you’ll take home a range of tips you can apply to any other sweater you want to knit.
Then we’ll all cast on together and start an 8-week knitting extravaganza, culminating in a Fancywork Fashion Show celebrating our favorite new cardigan!
Space is limited to 20 participants for this special event, so hop online or pop into the shop to reserve your seat!
