Learn how to design and crochet a round-yoke pullover that fits perfectly!

We will go over the required measurements and where they come from, review the math involved in getting the appropriate numbers, and learn to convert those measurements into stitches and rows.

You will also learn how to how to adjust for positive and negative ease, and grade a pattern to fit multiple sizes. Sandra then shows how she figures the yardage required for a garment in multiple sizes, and how to add your personal style into the fit of the sweater.

Necklines are important! Nobody likes to be choked by their sweater or to show lots of skin at the back of the neck, and that is why Sandra will cover techniques to raise the back of a round-yoke and improve the fit around the neck and shoulders.

The fun begins as you discover and practice how to add colorwork, lace, or other embellishments to sweater yokes and learn the best techniques for shaping within the motifs.

Special skills or knowledge needed to take this workshop:
Must have basic skills in crochet and be comfortable using Excel or another spreadsheet programs such as Google Sheets.

Great course

Sandra is a great teacher, she didn't want anyone to leave confused so explained everything until we all understood. Super interesting, very maths heavy but that's fine for me, I'm excited to be able to bring my ideas to life now! I had no idea where to start before.

Great course

I really enjoyed the course and learnt a lot from it. Sandra was friendly and very helpful throughout. She took time explaining everything until we all understood. Full of detailed info and the means to use that info successfully.

This class is great, Sandra is a great teacher, who explain very well each concept and always give practical examples. She is very patient with everyone. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning crochet. I hope in the future she could extended the class to design other type of sweaters.
