Workshop meets Sunday, September 16th from 11am - 2pm
In this class, we’ll discuss embarking on making a top-down yoked sweater to fit you – knitting without using a pattern! Knitting from the top down, with a particular focus on adding colorwork, is an adventurous way to work. There will be fun choices and tricky ones along the way (fit, colors and short-rows, to name a few) and you choose how much (or little) planning you would like to do before you pick up your needles and yarn. It’s about the thrill of a journey where you have a looser idea of your final-destination. It is not for the feint hearted, but you don’t need to be a mathematical or knitting whizz to do it. Whichever level of wing-it suits your approach to knitting (and likely, life), it’s useful to start with knowing a few simple equations, measurements and principals so you can think about how they relate to each other (and your dream sweater). This class is discussion-based and aims to send you off inspired, with a good grounding in garment construction to allow you to proceed with confidence (and plenty of permission to fudge).
