Learn life-changing techniques for those of us with larger chests. Sweaters look best when they fit us in our shoulders and properly accommodate our chest. Bring your yarn, your needles and learn how to choose a size and to construct 2 types of bust darts for your chest, giving you endless choice for modifying any sweater pattern.
Take measurements of your natural waist, your full bust/chest and your upper torso as per homework document, and bring them to class. For vertical bust dart sample, using the yarn of your choice (I recommend DK or worsted weight) and needles appropriate to your yarn, cast on 40 sts. Work 5 rows in stockinette stitch, ending with a RS row.
