Class details:Tuesday - Top Down Sweater Design
Have you been dreaming of designing your own top down sweater, but don't know how to get started? This class is for adventurous knitters, ready to take the next steps. There will be a brief overview of the different top down sweater constructions and how to choose the one that suits your design ideas. Isabell will walk you through the single steps (important measurements, ease, effect of textures and stitch patterns,....) that bring your sweaters to life!
Materials: Notebook paper, pencil, tape measure, gauge swatch (see homework), knitting needles in various sizes plus some matching yarn, graph paper, a sweater you own of which you like the fit. This does not have to be a hand knit sweater - any sweater works.
Homework: Gauge swatch 5" x 5" in a medium weight yarn, light colored (not dark please). Wednesday morning - Short Rows, When and Why
In this class you will learn several different techniques for short rows to add shaping to your knitting and where to use them. You will learn how to add shaping to a neckline worked in the round, how to shape shoulders, bust darts and hem lines. Examples of my designs that use this method of shaping will be available to view in class.
Materials needed: Notepad and pen, knitting yarn and matching circular needles (DK or worsted wt will work best), safety pins or locking stitch markers, darning needle, crochet hook (same size as knitting needles) and some waste yarn.
1. Neckband (starting point for short row use in neck shaping): Cast on 40 stitches and join to knit in the round. Work 4 rounds in 1X1 Rib (k1, p1), then knit 1 round. Stitches should be left live on the needle.
2. Bust darts and hem lines: cast on 28 stis, work 6 row in Garter stitch, then 4 rows in Stockinette stitch. Stitches should be left live on the needle.Wednesday afternoon - Shawl Shapes
Shawls can come in a wide range of shapes. This class will help you understand how the shape of a shawl is built by the increases (decreases), and take your shawl knitting to a whole new level.
Once you get the basic idea, modifications are very easy to make, and it will be only a small step to bringing your own shawl ideas to life.
We will discuss basic shawl shaping (triangular, symmetric/asymmetric, circular, semi-circular, square, etc.), different ways to increase, how to add color/texture, or play with different yarn weights.
Materials: Knitting yarn and matching circular needles. Stitch Markers, Notebook and Pen.
