Experience level: Intermediate

Are you ready for some fresh adventure? This class delivers all that and more.

What if a pattern was merely the starting point for knitting the sweater you want? If you’re ready to venture from the straight and narrow, come along as designer Elizabeth Doherty guides you step by step through the essentials of customizing a design to achieve the fit you’re looking for.

For the class, Elizabeth has designed a new top-down circular-yoke pullover that uses simple slip-stitch patterning (where only one color is worked at a time) to create a rich tapestry of color and texture: the Squam Sweater!

The pattern will serve as the jumping-off point for exploring a range of pattern adjustments.

Learn to consider the elements of a design up front, and make changes to suit your style, shape, or stash. With simple plug-and-play math formulas that you can use over and over, see how easy it is to make adjustments via an overall change in gauge, as well as changing elements such as neckline, sleeve, and body circumferences independently of each other.

While the class is focused on this particular design, the concepts Elizabeth will share will apply to every other sweater that you knit in the future. Grab your needles and get ready to take your knitting to a whole nother level!
