Who doesn’t know the impressive sweaters with colourful patterns in the circular yoke? Raglan sweaters and jackets, especially top down ones, are also popular in the knitting world, they are considered easy to knit and easy to fit. Nevertheless many knitters are unhappy with their results and wonder what they are doing wrong. Many patterns do not produce a good fit in all sizes.
In this class I use lots of examples – and a bit of theory and maths – to explain how these two sweater shapes actually work and what tricks you can employ to adjust them perfectly to your measurements and body shape. I will also give some insights into the combination of raglan and circular yoke that I often employ in my own designs.
This class welcomes experienced sweater knitters as well as beginners who want to try their hands at making their first garment.
I will provide worksheets which we will use during the class. Participants will also receive a digital document with an in-depth summary of the class contents, including patterns for miniature sweaters which are especially suitable for beginners to explore the relevant techniques.
Please bring a tape measure and writing materials. Participants can apply the information to one of their own projects, and are invited to bring a pattern or their own design sketches with a raglan or circular yoke, or a finished or unfinished project that they are unhappy with.
The working language of this class is German, but I can help with English, too.
