Alter It To Fit: Custom Alterations for Knitting and Crochet with the Shibaguyz


You want to crochet and knit garments that REALLY fit your body. In this class we’ll teach you how to do that. Period. Need more than that? Read on… In this class, we will show you how to evaluate a pattern then make the necessary adjustments so it actually fits YOU! We’ll teach you the basics of fashion, fit, form and function that we use daily as fashion designers so you can see a pattern and make sure it fits YOUR body before you ever pick up your hooks, needles, and yarn. You will be able to look at a pattern and do a “virtual try on” to KNOW if it’s going to work for your body based on how the finished garment will sit on your body and how your body moves around inside that finished garment. When you come to class you’ll receive a copy of “The Shibaguyz’ FAB Fit System for Altering and Designing Crochet and Knit Patterns”, a comprehensive series of easy-to-follow fit worksheets and templates that include the formulas we use every day to go from concept to finished pattern. We’ll walk you through this step-by-step process for taking proper measurements and applying them to your pattern. We’ll also give you our magic shaping formula that will ensure you can make any alteration to any pattern with ease. We’ll even show you how to order the right about of yarn for your newly personalized project. By the end of class you will know how to alter any pattern to fit YOUR body!
