Learn how to customize sweater designs for a better fit. This course walks knitters through schematics and a little (necessary) math to make adjustments in patterns for a flattering and tailor-made project. We will discuss a few different basic sweater construction methods to help you understand your modifications and how to spot them going forward.  Included are several math worksheets for adjusting stitches or rows in a particular section of a sweater. We conclude by going through some finishing tips to maximize wearability and style in your knit-vestment! Kate has created a fabulously detailed workbook for this course which will keep your fingers free for knitting and give you something you can reference time and again. Also included is Kate's Dyad sweater pattern so that we can practice tailoring together!
Skill Level: Students must be able to knit, purl, cast-on, knit in the round, and understand basic increasing and decreasing. Bring an open mind about some easy math and patience with yourself!

  • Tailoring workbook & Dyad pattern- please print so that you have easy reference during class; students will receive an e-mail prior to class with these attachments
  • Yarn and appropriately sized circular or double pointed needles at worsted gauge or heavier; this yarn should be scrap yarn or yarn for a project you are ready to customize and want to determine proper gauge for.  You will not be able to reuse this yarn after we swatch so plan appropriately to make sure you have enough extra yardage.
