If you’re still wanting to knit your first sweater and haven’t gotten started yet, Lion Brand Yarn and Very Pink have teamed up for a great little video tutorial showing how to knit the company’s Cropped Raglan Cardigan.
The whole tutorial is almost 40 minutes long and assumes you know how to knit and purl but all the other skills you need are covered in the video.
This is a great way to get over some of the fear you might be feeling about starting a project as big as a sweater. This one is mostly plain Stockinette Stitch and it has short sleeves so it’s not all that long of a project and will get you comfortable with everything you need to know to take on a more complex sweater project. Now’s the perfect time to get started and you won’t even have to add “learn to knit a sweater” to your New Year’s resolutions next year!
