Classes with Holli Yeo

We’re so excited to announce our partnership with the amazing local designer Holli Yeoh to present a lineup of new and classic classes over the next few months.

Beginner Sweater
Holli’s first fall class at Baaad Anna’s is her long-running Beginner Sweater class. Using a baby cardigan pattern that Holli has designed specifically for this class, you’ll learn the basics on sweater construction, shaping, swatching and lots of other helpful tips. Come to class with your first gauge swatch already knit and you’ll be well on your way to completing your first sweater. By the end of the class you’ll have the skills to tackle a full-sized sweater for yourself!
Suitable for advanced beginners and beyond.

You will feel a sense of pride and confidence in your finished projects!
