My First Big Comfy Sweater:
This sweater is a FREE pattern on Red Heart’s website. Perfect for a beginner knitter with simple stitch patterns and the fact that it is worked from two identical t-shaped pieces. With no shaping, this is the perfect first garment to knit, so let me show you how to make it.
In the Video tutorial, you will learn garter stitch, stockinette stitch, seaming, ribbing, and two ways to work the long tail cast on.
