Knit a Better Fitting Sweater
Have you ever knit that sweater that’s all over Instagram, the one that all your friends are making, only to stuff it in you closet and never wear it? Maybe it was too short, too tight in some spots and too loose in other or just plain uncomfortable. That’s because we designers write patterns to fit generically ‘standard’ sizes. Problem is almost none of us are ‘standard’ sizes. We’re all a little different.
So, let’s learn how to fix that. In class, we’ll take body measurements so you know what your fit is, discuss different sweater types and what might fit you best based on your body size. Also, I’ll show you how to discover the parts of a pattern you might want to adjust for a better fit. You’ll leave class with a better idea of the sweater style you like and the confidence to make adjustments for a better fit.

Set-In Sleeve From The Top Down
A set-in sleeve can be intimidating. If you don’t sew it in just right it looks SO wrong. Even after two decades of sweater knitting, it can take me several tries to get it sewn in perfectly. Set-in sleeves from the knit from the top down will rescue you from all of this. Pick up stitches around the armhole opening and work down. No sewing required. Best of all, you can use this technique in any set in sleeve sweater, whether the pattern is written that way or not.
