Knitting empowers us to create a sweater, top or cardigan according to our individual ideas and requirements. For many knitters, however, (even for experienced ones) handmade garments can be a source of confusion and frustration, especially for those of us who don’t fit into average sizes.
This class is for everyone who wants to knit better-fitting garmens – both for beginners who have never knit a sweater and for advanced knitters who are inspired to design their own items and to adapt patterns to their individual proportions.
I will show you how to identify and calculate important elements of fit and shaping, with a special focus on bust adjustment (horizontal and vertical darts). A little bit of maths, lots of clear examples and a few exciting lightbulb moments are waiting for you!
It’s my mission to show you that knitting well-fitting garments is not rocket science.
The focus in this class is on garment design and shaping. If you are mainly interested in thoroughly taking your body measurements, the class on Saturday morning may be more appropriate for you.
You are welcome to bring a design idea, a pattern or a work in progress or finished project which your are unhappy with, so that we can work with that. (Not obligatory, though.)
I will provide worksheets, and participants will receive a PDF file with a helpful summary and further tips and tricks after the class.
The working language of the class is German, but I can help and explain in English, too. The worksheets can be provided in German, English or French. The summary can be sent in German or English.
