This workshop is for intermediate to advanced knitters who have knit top-down sweaters before, but want to learn how to alter a pattern.

Chiaki will lead all of the discussions and will teach you the essential skills you need to make the changes you are looking for in your garment

This workshop will bring you to a whole new level of understanding patterns!

This class uses the basic "Knit House Top-Down Pullover pattern" (gauge = 18 sts, 26 rows / 4" x 4"). You may choose a gauge range between 22 ~ 16 sts / 4".

Instructor: Chiaki Hayashi

Dates: May 8, 15 & 22. Saturdays, 10-11 am

Session 1 - "Gauge" If your gauge is different from the original pattern, what do you do?? Homework - 1. Finish your gauge swatch. 2. Bring ideas for how you would like to change/add to the original design.

Session 2 - "How to Change/Add Design Elements to Your Sweater Including Altering the Measurements" Based on Session 1's discussion, Chiaki will show you how to change/add details to your sweater.

Session 3 - "Share Your Progress" Check in on individual progress. Discuss "designing sleeves".

Finishing Party - TBD. Hopefully in person at the shop!



Yarn - Please purchase your yarn from Knit House. Please use the original pattern to help you determine the amount of yarn you will need if you are planning to change the length, etc. of your sweater. If you are using a smaller gauge yarn, you might need more yardage (but less total weight). If you are using a larger gauge yarn, you might need less yardage (but more total weight). 

Needles - 24" (or longer), 16" long circular needles and DPNs, both in the main size and one size smaller. The needle size varies according to your yarn choice.

Pattern - Please purchase HERE.

Notions - stitch markers, waste yarn, tapestry needle.
