Class Details:

When I’m making a sweater for myself, I make myself a visual “map” to show me what to do and when. Body shaping, sleeve shaping, bust darts and more are all on this 1 page image that acts as a guide for making my sweater. In this class, I’ll show you how to make your own!

By the end of this class, you will have:
• a body map of yourself
• An understanding of ease and what your ease preferences are
• A simplified sweater map for a basic, set-in sleeve sweater designed for your body
• A plan for using the sweater map alongside other patterns to create sweaters that fit you well.

Technique Requirements: should have experience making sweater modifications; if you’ve taken my fit classes, you are ready for this next step!
