In this class we will use Elizabeth Zimmermann's Percentage System to design a yoke sweater with patterning you choose. It is a straight forward system that helps you create a sweater to your measurements. Bring your stitch dictionaries for color work, some colored pencils and a creative attitude. Skills taught include swatching in the round, short row shaping, grafting, centering motifs, and phony seams.
