A Sense of Proportion: A Glorious Compendium of Methods for Knitting Without Tapes and Rulers with Franklin Habit
A tape measure is wonderful thing. So is a knitting pattern. But have you dreamt of being freed from both, and working your way from cast-on to finished garment using neither one nor the other? You can. The history of knitting is full of time-tested methods for using the proportions of the human body, and of the knitting itself, to determine stitch counts, shapings, and measurements to yield garments with a custom fit. Through lecture, and practice students will learn about useful relative proportions of the human body, as well as formulae and folklore for hats, mittens, socks, shawls, and fitted upper garments. And yes, you'll need a tape measure…but not for long.
