Draping a Pattern: a Demonstration with Lily Chin
There are many ways to draft an original pattern. Draping is one of them and is never talked about nor covered in knitting. With commercial knit fabric, we will construct garments on 2 volunteers and use this 'mock up' as a basis for our knitting. We will transpose the pieces onto gridded marker paper then plug in our gauge and figure out areas of simplification. Motifs may be previewed, stitch patterns 'tried out,' and details tested. Most importantly, a personal and customized fit will be ensured.
Wear a tight camisole or leotard if you want to be draped for a pattern. Purely optional: bring any commercial sewing pattern of your choice for any style.
Note: $10 materials fee for fabric and pattern for 2 volunteers chosen from class.
