Never knit a sweater you don't absolutely love! Join one of our most popular instructors, Amy Herzog, and conquer modifications you can make at every step for brilliant, custom knit sweaters. During class, you'll learn how to achieve the perfect fit at the shoulders, bust, hips and waist by altering the "choose your own adventure" pattern included with class. With this practice, you'll be set up to alter lots of great patterns to fit you! You'll start with silhouettes and tips for accurate body measurements before Amy introduces you to ease and how to adjust it. Wondering how to plug your own measurements into a pattern? You'll learn to make all the modifications you need using simple steps and formulas that get great results. Plus, you'll learn must-have finishing techniques and eye-catching stitch patterns that will make your sweater truly yours.
Approach swatching like a designer, as an exciting way to test your yarn and the fabric it creates. Amy shares tricks for successful swatching, from accurate measuring to judging the fabric for flexibility and durability. You'll also learn about fiber types and what they can do for you.
A great sweater begins with proper shoulder or upper torso fit. Choose a pattern based on that and you can modify other measurements to fit your body. Amy helps you calculate measurements, understand the pattern schematic and start drawing up your own.
