About the workshop:


Being able to recognize the need for, and execute, modifications is the key to getting a bespoke fit. But many knitters come to the craft without a background in sewing or tailoring, and aren’t even aware of what’s possible. This three-hour class for knitters teaches the basics of getting a great size and gives them a tour of what’s available.

Objectives
• Understand why your sweaters might not have the fit you expected
• Learn to decode a schematic and relate it to your own measurements
• Understand what modifications CAN be made, and make informed choices about which ones will impact fit


Class Materials
• Handout with key points that attendees can refer back to
• Resource sheet with places to find more information to execute modifications and learn more about fit

Participants will also have the opportunity to bring in a sweater to have their fit assessed, and will have the chance to have their measurements taken.
