Design Your Dream Sweater (Part 2) with Leslye Solomon
Once you have completed Design Your Dream Sweater Part 1 to create the basic set-in sleeve sweater, continue adding to your knowledge of sweater designing beyond the basics. In this class, reinforce what you have learned by practicing the easy-to-learn tricks to mapping every stitch and row of two versions of a sleeve cap that will fit into your armhole. Learn how to create a fitted look by shaping from the hips to the waist. Be able to map an asymmetrical bottom edge. With the knowledge of shaping the round and V neck, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to design a lapel or shawl collar. Gain confidence in choosing colors, and mixing various fibers together creating your own fabric design. We will discuss planning knit and purl or color-pattern repeats, and how to plan a sculptural Aran-style sweaters, intarsia designs, and plaids. This information-packed class will inspire you to add interesting variations to your evolving list of knitting talents.
