MATERIALS (not included)

Notebook and pen


What if a pattern was merely the starting point for knitting the sweater you want? If you’re ready to venture from the straight and narrow, join designer Elizabeth Doherty as she guides you step by step through the essentials of customizing a design to achieve the fit you’re looking for.

Learn to consider the elements of a design up front, and make changes to suit your style, shape, or stash. With simple plug-and-play math formulas that you can use over and over, see how easy it is to make adjustments via an overall change in gauge, as well as changing elements such as neckline, sleeve, and body circumferences independently of each other.

While the class is focused on circular yoked sweaters, the concepts Elizabeth will share will apply to every other sweater that you knit in the future. Are you ready for the adventure?

Elizabeth Doherty is a highly respected knitwear designer, national teacher and published author based in Truckee, CA.  Her designs are known for their meticulous attention to fit in addition to their unique and modern interpretations of surface embellishment.  In this workshop she will share her insights into creating beautiful slip stitch yokes. 

*  Introductions and a brief history and general review of yoke styles and construction
*  Fit and function - this will include how to recognise how a yoke will look on YOU, measuring to create a personal schematic and an analysis of the modification for each individual student  - and how to make them
*  Speed swatching for slip stitching and how to understand using colour in this technique
*  Detailed swatching instructions for students' pattern choice
