Class sessions will be recorded and remain accessible online to registered students of the class for 7 days following the event.
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.
