Design in a Day with Christine Bylsma
Want to turn that idea floating around in your head into a functional pattern with stitches on your needle by the end of the day? Or maybe you just wish you could change the neckline or sizing. You CAN do it! Spend the day with Chris Bylsma, a creative yet practical designer, who has honed her skills through 'experience'(compared to being an 'expert'). Learn the practical, perhaps unconventional, ways to demystify gauge, sizing, style, measurements, swatch, and yarn choice. The result is a personalized pattern for you and a new sense of empowerment. Whether you are adventurous or never ventured from a pattern before, learn to take control of your knitting.
Note: You need to have knit a wearable garment such as a sweater or jacket.   

Supplies
Yarn and needles used for swatch, additional needles larger and smaller than swatch needles and perhaps alternate yarn(s) for swatching, tape measure, calculator, notepaper, pencil, eraser, knit top or sweater that fits you the way you like. Wear a tank top, camisole or close fitting T for taking measurements.

Homework
Work a 6" x 6" swatch in the yarn, needles and pattern you might want to use for a garment.
