Learn all steps you need to knit your very own We Are Knitters 1760 sweater, a beginner friendly pattern. Some of the skills you'll pick up in this class are rib knitting, knitting in garter, how to make invisible increases in your work, shortcuts to knitting two sleeves at once and how to care for your new garment.

Hi! I'm Alison, the founder and knitter behind La Reserve Design. I have always loved making things with my own two hands, working part time as a textile designer in Montreal, and part-time on my own knitwear business. I grew up spending summers north of the city at a family cabin, where I learned all the important stuff: how to swim, how to ski and how to knit. This special part of the world and the nature reserves within it are the inspiration for my shop: La Reserve Design.
