Brenna wants every knitter to feel empowered to make their own design choices, and in this class we make custom fit simple and easy. A method using measurements and very simple calculations for finding your stitch counts is a perfect way to enter the world of knitting without a pattern, making your own designs, and knitting things that fit well on the first try! Once you master this method you can add your own design elements like cables, colorwork, lace and more.

We will be knitting a top down raglan-style sweater in miniature to try out the method on a small scale and learn to apply those skills to full sized sweaters with the measurements and design elements of your choice. It is suggested that you have experience knitting a sweater before taking this class.

Note: Knitting homework is required between classes.

Cost: $55 for three, 2-hour sessions
