Class Description: Students will learn how to make the Birdwatcher pattern by Casapinka.  Birdwatcher is a slightly cropped (you can make it longer if you choose, but you will need more yarn) summer top that looks great in speckled or tonal yarns.  It is constructed in the round from the bottom up, to the underarms.  You then knit back and forth, separately, and join with a three needle bind off to connect the front and back.
