           A Weekend With "The Weekender"

                Friday, Saturday & Sunday, April 6-8, 2018

                            Join Nautical Yarn & one of the three Ludington Bed and Breakfasts for a Weekend with
                            THE WEEKENDER!  During the weekend of April 6, 7 & 8th, Nautical Yarn will be knitting
                            Andrea Mowry's The Weekend Sweater.

                            On Friday Night, Nautical Yarn will host a brief fitting class with a light pizza and salad
                            dinner. The Weekender is an oversized sweater and doesn't require a lot of fitting, but
                            we will cover the basics of garment fitting.  You will also knit and block your swatch to be
                            measured Saturday morning.

                            On Saturday morning, we will begin to cover the skills required for the sweater including
                            Tubular cast on.  You will be able to cast on the stitches for your sweater and begin work
                            on the bottom hems and body of the sweater.

                            After lunch on Saturday, we will cover the shoulder shaping skills required  including
                            two methods of short-row shaping.

                            Following Saturday evening dinner, a knitting party will be held at the Lamplighter
                            Bed & Breakfast in Ludington.  Everyone is invited to knit with friends and enjoy refreshments.

                            Sunday morning, we will learn two bind-off skills including 3-needle bind-off and
                            Tubular bind-off with Kitchener stitch.

                            All classes will take place at Nautical Yarn located at 108 S. Rath Avenue in downtown
                            Ludington.

                            The Weekender sweater takes (915/XS, 1015/S, 1130/M, 1265/L, 1385/XL, 1520/XXL,
                            1640/XXXL) yds worsted weight yarn.  Size 7, 8, and 9 needles are required, but we
