Workshop: Rift Pullover
Wednesdays, July 8, 22, August 5, 19; 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Knit-a-long with us as we explore the Rift pullover. From the designer, Jacqueline Cieslak, “Rift cracks open all your assumptions about what a “basic tee” pattern should be. This lightweight, bottom-up knit includes instructions for two necklines, optional bust darts, and a custom fit bicep. The design features a slightly cropped body and a split high-low hem in twisted rib, giving it enough detailing to be interesting while maintaining a timeless simplicity.”
While timeless in its simplicity, there are many skills to learn! We will cover every technique and option this pattern has to offer. Learn how to pick the right size, the importance of a blocked swatch, German short rows, twisted stitches, picking up stitches, and the three-needle bind-off.
Prior to the class starting, Pam will meet with you (via Zoom) to check your gauge and assist with measuring your swatch.

Taught by Pam Grushkin: I love to share my passion for knitting and crochet through teaching and designing. My designs have been published in Vogue Knitting, Knitting Socks with Handpainted Yarn, One + One Hat, One + One Wraps, Cowls, & Capelets, Tahki Stacy Charles and independently as Pam Grushkin Designs. In 2004 I began to work at Knit Together in Stamford, CT. It was there that I created Stitch and Chat. A class dedicated to supporting knitters and crocheters. Since then I have built a rich curriculum of classes that range from beginner to intermediate.
