Curvy Knits: Plus-size Knitting with Marly Bird
Have you ever spent time and yarn money to knit a sweater that you never wear because it stretched, feels funny, or makes you look massive? Designer and plus-size lady Marly Bird feels your pain.
In Curvy Knits: Plus-size Knitting, you'll learn to select the perfect pattern for your shape and to make easy fit adjustments to bust, sleeves, neckline and other trouble spots. You'll learn how to transform swatching from a boring chore into a valuable tool. You'll use your favorite sweater, right out of your closet, to tell you things you never knew about yourself. Get advice and help from Marly as you learn the same techniques knitwear designers use for a perfect fit and finish every time.
Note: Must have knit at least one sweater and know how to increase, decrease and read a pattern.
Your favorite sweater or shirt from your closet, graph paper, calculator, colored pencils, regular pencil and eraser, tape measure.
Stockinette swatch at least 6" x 6" using #2 (sport) or #3 (DK) yarn. Bring your up-to-date measurements with you.
