We don’t often take the plunge to make a full garment in Madame Defarge’s Salon, but for this late winter workshop, our expert teachers are going to help you make a chic cardigan. You’ll learn or hone techniques like gauge swatching, picking up stitches, finishing and blocking. This workshop will run through April to allow students a generous amount of teaching and knitting time. Materials list will be sent with registration confirmation. Register online or call 720-865-1205.
