Elegant Increases, Delightful Decreases with Carol Sulcoski
Are you dissatisfied with the way your shaping looks in finished garments? Confused by different increases and decreases, and not sure when to use which one? Or do you use only one method of increasing and decreasing and would like to learn more? In this class we'll cover a variety of methods which can be used to increase and decrease stitches, the different appearance that each has, how to increase on the wrong (private) side of the work, and what it means to do fully fashioned shaping. We'll also talk about ways to increase and decrease within a pattern stitch.
