Projects & Patterns, Tips & Techniques
One of the challenges of knitting from a pattern is deciphering the instructions for a given size from among all the sizes listed. In addition, it can be difficult to visualize the overall architecture of a sweater based solely on the written instructions. In this class we will learn how to gather all of the relevant information for a given size and with it create a schematic road map that can guide us through the process of knitting the garment. Our roadmap will help us to envision the entire process before doing the actual knitting, making mistakes much less likely. It also serves as a convenient shorthand version of the pattern to take with you instead of having to refer to pages of text. And best of all, it serves as a template for future modifications and even your own designs. Once you understand the architecture of a sweater you will have the essential tools to repeat what was successful and change what was not. Take your sweater knitting to the next level.
