Friday, January 26, 2024
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Session Type:
3-Hour Class
Skill Level:
Kim McBrien Evans
Garments, Knitting, Tips & Techniques
Class Details:

When you have a large bust; broad or narrow rounded shoulders; a full belly; wide hips; or large biceps, it can feel like certain sweater styles are not for you—but that’s simply not true!

Learn about key measurements that help you make your best-fitting drop-shoulder sweater yet! Using your measurements and body type, learn how to choose a size for a drop-shoulder construction based on the style of the drop (traditional drop shoulder, modified drop shoulder, Dolman sleeve, etc). We’ll look at the body shape of a number of popular patterns, and learn how to modify the shape when it’s not quite right for you. Finally: sleeves. We’ll talk about drop-shoulder sleeve and armhole construction and how you can “mix and match” sleeve and body sizes within the same pattern.

Technique Requirements: knit/purl, cast on/bind off, increase/decrease, have knit a whole garment, basic finishing techniques


Email your drop sweater fit issues, concerns, and photos to Kim at: at least 3 days prior to class.
