Class Details:
Amy’s signature class helps you understand why some sweaters look stunning on both you and the page, and others… not so much. She gives you the tools you’ll need to produce sweaters that make you feel great, every time you pick up the needles. In class, we discuss: • Why your body shape is way more important than your size, and how to determine what your shape is • How clothing changes the appearance of the body’s shape • What looks best on each figure type, driven into reality by lots and lots of trying on samples • How to properly measure your body for sweater knitting • How to choose what size to knit, demystifying ease, and modifying existing patterns (please note we do not go into modifications in detail in this class) • General sweater tips and tricks, student-brought questions and discussion topics Amy brings a big suitcase of sweaters to try on during class, so if you’d like to participate please wear a top that’s easy to layer under a sweater! Please also bring along a measuring tape and your adventurous inner knitter. Technique Requirements: Knit/Purl; cast on/bind off; and increase/decrease
Homework:
Take a body shape analysis photo.
Supplies for Class:
A measuring tape is definitely helpful.
