CLOSED Fiberside Chats: Kate Oates January 22, 2023
Ready, Set, PLAN!
Knitting a sweater that flatters begins with the work you put in on the front end, before even casting on. In this chat, knitters will learn all about the pre-knitting prep that goes into creating a dream sweater fit including swatching tips, taking measurements and how to choose a size based on ease and garment construction.
To make the most of this chat, knitters should have a few things handy: scrap yarn, notebook & pencil, measuring tape & a sturdy piece of cardboard letter sized or larger (a flattened box will work just fine!)
kate oates is a knitting pattern designer and author with almost 300 individual designs and several books: grown, knits for boys and knitting clothes kids love. under her own name, she creates a line of modern and stylish knits for adults. her other line, tot toppers, features whimsically wearable garments and accessories for babies and children. kate is known for her attention to detail & fit, extensive size ranges and providing a multitude of options within her patterns. you can find her patterns at your local yarn store or online. she also does freelance work for a variety of publications and yarn companies.
