One of the most common questions knitters ask is about making a sweater fit. In this class, we’ll take a look at the first steps to making that happen. You will pair with another student and record your measurements, and then we will discuss how to use this information to knit patterns effectively. Be sure to read the note about materials to bring. Let’s get fit!

Techniques covered
  • Getting your own measurements clearly documented

  • Using the pattern information and schematic to plan adjustments
