Never knit a sweater? Knit a few sweaters but none of them fit quite right? This chance to look at construction styles of 60 sweaters, along with yarn choices, will allow students to really visually “see” what they may like or dislike about a sweater they plan to knit. How to fix a gaping neckline? What about if a sweater is too long? What if sleeves are too short? Can a hand-knit sweater actually make you look thinner?

In this class, Cori will give you ideas for things you’ve never heard of doing to get a sweater to fit you superbly. She’ll show you why some sweaters look great on everyone and will talk about why some sweaters will never fit anyone well, even though we love the look of them. Learn these tips and more all in one place at one time, and you can try them all on!

Students should bring paper and a pen or pencil.
