Release the designer in you and/or learn how to create or customize a basic sweater pattern to your personal needs.  This is an easy workshop on learning the secrets to designing one’s own sweater pattern. The goal of this class is to help the knitter understand how she can swatch any yarn or combination of yarns and turn the information from that swatch into a sweater pattern.  This will result into garment that is the width, length, and shape desired. Using a special knitter’s grid, each student will practice mapping out every stitch and row of the elements of a sample sweater.  Topics covered will be gauge making, preparation, and measuring.  Learn about body measurements and ease.  Learn the secrets to shaping armholes and how to design a variety of neck shapes.  Learn how to shape sleeves and sleeve caps that will fit into armholes.  Learn about adjusting and changing existing patterns, yarn quantities depending on the gauge of the chosen yarn, converting an existing pattern to a different gauge.  This class will release the designer in you.
