Knit to Fit was born from the many messages I received while working in a yarn shop asking me how I changed the patterns for knit sweaters to look so flattering on my body type. This class will teach you:
-how to measure your body to knit the correct size.
-introduce different body types and shapes that flatter those types.
-introduce a formula to change increases and decreases in knitting to change a pattern.
*please bring a measuring tape and your favorite sweater/shirt/blouse/sweatshirt to class.
