This is an in-person class at Fuzzy Goat! Please review our covid policies below and other class policies before enrolling. Adults only please

Learn to knit lace AND one of our most popular cardigans from "Sweaters Together" Melissa! Casapinka's Look, Squirrel is a top-down and seamless circular yoke sweater that knits up quickly with DK weight yarn. Cadence saw this sweater on Casapinka when she visited Fuzzy Goat a while ago and HAD to make it! 🐿 It is universally flattering. This pattern is for those who are easily distracted by shiny or moving things. Once you get through the yoke, you can go squirrel spotting all day while knitting. If you would like to make your sweater short-sleeved, you'll discuss that option in class.

Come and talk yarn with Melissa to make your best choice

    Every computer monitor is calibrated differently. Slight variations in tone and saturation will vary from monitor to monitor. The actual color of your item may vary slightly from what you see on your screen.

    Return Policy

    To protect you from odd dye lots, odors, or allergens, yarn may not be returned. We want to be sure that each skein you get has come direct from the dyer, to the shop to you. Full priced items other than yarn may be exchanged for shop credit if Fuzzy Goat receives the item within 2 weeks of when you received the item. 

    To be eligible for an exchange, there must be proof of purchase, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging and in re-saleable condition when Fuzzy Goat receives it. Shop credit will be for the items purchased and not inclusive of shipping. We recommend insuring your package as we cannot credit returns for items that do not arrive.

    If you are requesting to cancel an order, within two hours of your order and we have not wound your yarn and it has not yet reached our Fulfillment Maven, we will issue you shop credit for your whole order. (We incur quite a few non-refundable fees from our merchant services as soon as your order is placed)

    Thanks for your understanding.
