Class Details:

Students will be required to wear masks to attend this class.

Using a schematic and your measurements, we’ll look at how to master the fit of sweater patterns to YOUR body, and what those modifications look like in a simplified form.


  • How to choose a size to start with.
  • How to compare your measurements to sweater schematics to learn how a “hybrid size” can be a solution when your measurements span more than one size.
  • What to do when your weight is carried more in front or back
  • What to do when your gauge and the pattern gauge don’t agree.

Note: this class used to be called Modifications: Easy Sweater Math.
