Reading Schematics

If you're interested in fit, you've probably heard the advice to check the schematic. But, schematics can be overwhelming if you're not sure where to start or what the labels on the schematic may correspond to on your body.

This is an introductory level workshop that runs for 90 minutes.

Dates offered: January 6th 3:00pm OR January 7th 1:00pm.

Judging Patterns

How often have you knit a sweater from a pattern, only to find that it looks nothing like the modeled photos? Or to wear it, only to find that it's not designed with human bodies in mind?

After taking this class, you'll be able to look at a pattern listing online and know what you can expect from the finished project.

Dates offered: January 6th 1:00pm OR January 7th 3:00pm.

Working with Lace and Texture

You don't need to be intimidated by all-over lace and texture! Garment knitting with an all-over texture can be one of the trickiest bits of knitting to master; yet, once you get the hang of it you'll forget you ever struggled!

This is an intermediate level workshop that runs for 2 hours.

Dates offered: January 20th 3:00pm OR February 3rd 3:00pm.

A Better Fitting Sweater

This class is designed to give you the tools to do just that. We'll take our own measurements and get a better fit by choosing a size using upper chest. We'll talk about grading from a designer's perspective and how that impacts the fit you'll get from patterns. Finally, we'll broadly cover different kinds of adjustments and modifications you can make and how they can transform your fit so you have a better idea of what's possible.

Dates offered: January 20th at 1:00pm
