Tuesday 13th April 6pm to 8pm (BST) - Sweaters That Fit!

Join us on Zoom for a fascinating workshop with Kim McBrien Evan from Indigodragonfly.

Are you a would-be Sweater Knitter? Do you have fears of putting time and effort into sweaters that don’t fit?

In this class we’ll look at ways to improve your sweater knitting before you start your pattern.

  • Learn how to create perfect sweater fabric and how to take the most important measurements for sweater fit
  • Apply that information to how to choose the best size for you
  • How to build a “hybrid size” when your measurements span more than one size

Finally we’ll look at what you need to know about sweater knitting, ease and design details to knit better sweaters for your body and personal style.

You’re welcome to email details of any hand knit sweater fit issues you’ve had in the past so we can cover them in class.
