More Than One Way to Skin a Sweater class

Exploring the pros and cons of eleven sweater construction methods will give newer knitters the confidence to step up to sweaters while inspiring intermediate knitters to try the tougher challenges. Along the way, we’ll explore problem solving on these real example sweaters. Students will be asked to break into groups and scrutinize the sample garments. There will be a lot of discussion, and a lot of looking at samples, diagrams and paper models, but not a lot of swatching. Three-dimensional thinking and problem-solving are encouraged.

Skill level is late beginner.
Prerequisites: Students should have a basic knowledge of how to shape fabrics through increasing and decreasing.

Maximum 20 students.

½ day workshop

Students receive a handout in booklet form.

No materials fee.

Homework: None.

Supplies:
None. This class is primarily thinking and observing rather than making swatches.

No special needs for the room set up. A whiteboard or flip chart is nice to have but not need to have. Room set-up should be tables and chairs either facing forward or in a U-shape.
