In this fun workshop we’ll go through everything you need to successfully make perfectly fitted sweaters. We’ll cover matching the right yarn to your pattern, how to get the most out of swatching, and taking accurate measurements. Then we’ll put that information to use learning how to shape your sweater for the perfect fit and a flattering visual effect. This is a great chance to discuss the techniques and information in Little Red in the City and ask questions about shaping for your body. There will also be an opportunity to get hands on help with shaping techniques, such as short rows.
Skill Level: Intermediate
Date and Time: Friday, June 15; 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Materials: The class will be mostly theory-based but students should bring a notebook, pencil, tape measure, worsted weight yarn and appropriate needles for swatching. If knitting while listening helps you take in information please do bring it, if not that’s fine too.
