Make a sweater custom fit just for you! This amazing program developed by Amy Herzog is a sweater pattern software program that takes your body’s measurements and your knitting gauge and then creates a pattern based on those numbers. You have many designs to choose from, or design your own style with her “sweater builder” function (all patterns are $10).
You will learn how to: create a gauge swatch that is just right for you, read a classic sweater pattern, create edges that are easy to seam, weave in ends, sew a sweater together, and more!
You should already know how to: cast on, knit, purl, bind off, work in a rib pattern, increase, and decrease.
Required Materials: yarn of your choice in approximate sweater quantity and corresponding needles (we can help you with this). Please also bring scissors, a darning needle, a tape measure, project bag, and stitch markers.
Please purchase your sweater yarn at Cast Away. If you plan on buying your materials the day of the class, please come at least 30 minutes early.
