June 13 Altering Patterns for Size, Style and Gauge with Kira Dulaney
10 am - 12 noon PT
It can be hard to find just the right knitting or crochet pattern to fit your yarn, body, and fashion sense. We will go through common alterations for size, gauge, and style. This class will be useful for anyone who knits or crochets garments or accessories. This is a virtual workshop and will include live lecture, Q&A, and a handout. The workshop will not be recorded and students do not have permission to record it.
Techniques will include:
changing patterns from working flat to in the round
changing an entire pattern for a different stitch and/or row gauge
adding or customizing waist shaping
altering shoulder and neckline shaping, for example adjusting a set in armhole for a wider shoulder, or changing from a crew neck to a V neck
two methods to change the size of the entire pattern
This is a lecture style class so you don't need to have any tools and you are welcome to knit or crochet while watching. You may want to print out the handout that will be emailed to you two days in advance and/or have note-taking supplies and a calculator on hand.
