If You Can Draw It, You Can Design It! with Patty Lyons
Learn how to design any shape no matter how complex. We’ll start by going over my five steps to the basics of design. We’ll learn how to calculate the rate of increase and decrease and we’ll start with some simple shapes. Then we’ll move on to more complex compound shaping. Using a dolman sweater as an example, we’ll learn how to break things down into shaping zones to figure out how to knit them. Finally we’ll go over the use of short rows to create things like shirt tail hems and shawl collars. Remember, if you can draw it, you can design it!
