Secrets of the Sleeve Cap with Patty Lyons
A properly sized sleeve cap can make or break a garment. Learn the math to design a traditional sleeve cap and how to redesign a pattern’s sleeve cap if your row gauge is not perfect. After discussing what the domino effect of changing one part of a pattern without readdressing the cap is, we will move on to alternative cap methods. We will discuss use of short rows for knitting a better cap, as well as explore the nifty trick of picking up stitches and knitting a sleeve from the cap down. You will never look at sleeves the same again!
NOTE: Math is used in sweater design.

Paper, pen, calculator, tape measure.
OPTIONAL: if you want to try any of the methods if time allows, yarn and needles appropriate for yarn (worsted or chunky weight)
