It’s easier than you think! Learn the basics of creating your own pattern from a gauge swatch and a few simple measurements (don’t worry — only one actual body measurement will be taken!). Plan a garment that fits the way you want it to, using a yarn that you love. You’ll write patterns in class for a simple sleeveless shell or vest and a dropped-shoulder cardigan. Some experience knitting from a pattern will be helpful, but not necessary. This class is intended for advanced beginners who are curious about modifying an existing pattern or creating their own.
