This class will present materials to help you design items like sweaters from scratch, as well as to modify existing patterns to suit a particular need. We will go over resources and techniques, and you will leave with a basic pattern for a project of your choice. While the focus will be on knitting, crocheters should find the class useful as well. No design or drawing skills are required. Note that if you choose a large garment like a sweater, the design might not be complete at the end of the class, but the important elements of it should be. Some basic math is involved, but don’t let that scare you; your calculator will do all the hard stuff! Free resources are available on the internet and in books.
Participants must provide graph paper and regular note paper; colored pencils or pens; a calculator; and some ideas of what they would like to design (this could be anything from a wrist warmer to a dishcloth to a sweater).
