Pattern Drafting for Knitters, Crocheters and Sewists with Cal Patch
When you plan to knit, crochet, or sew a garment for yourself (or anyone else), the first step is determining the unique size, shape, and proportion of the body you wish to clothe. Like snowflakes, none of us are exactly alike, and not until we assess our actual dimensions can we begin to achieve the goal of perfect fit! Cal will show you how to take your measurements properly and use them to draft a sloper (basic pattern) for your personal fit profile. Do think of it as a life-size schematic, which you can refer to as you knit from a pattern, or while designing your own! We will also discuss the concept of ease, both positive and negative, and how it affects the end result. Understanding and taking control of these elements will allow you to create pieces that fit and flatter YOU.
