In this three-part class, you will go from idea to sketch to pattern. Class 1: We will look at the upcoming trends and forecasts in the knitwear industry and sketch designs using these or your own inspirations. From your rough sketches, Josh will pick a design that you will be able to write a pattern to make. We will discuss design aspects to help your design look fashion-forward and wearable. Class 2: We will learn all the pattern math to make your design an actual garment. We will also discuss tips and techniques to make your design more professional looking and have better wear.
