Mastering Mindful Modification with Amy Herzog
It’s one thing to look at a YouTube video on working short rows, and quite another to identify (a) when you need shaping, (b) what you’re trying to accomplish with your shaping, and (c) figure out the mechanics of carrying out a mod. In this class, we cover how to work, and when you need, all major modifications a knitter would make to a sweater. This includes:
• Bust darts of all kinds
• Frankensweatering: Front/back and top/bottom
• Body and sleeve lengthening/shortening
• Neckline modifications
This class is aimed at intermediate knitters or beginning knitters who are adventurous and not shy about using their calculator. Students should feel comfortable with knitting, purling, increasing, and decreasing. Basic familiarity with short rows is a plus but definitely not required.
Calculator, pencil/paper are required, a measurement sheet, like the one we fill out in Knit to Flatter workshops, is also helpful but not required.
