Book signing party and workshop "Knit to Fit: Altering Patterns to Fit Your Body"
Time & Location
About the Event
In this workshop you will learn how to adjust a knitting pattern to properly fit YOUR measurements. Topics will include taking accurate measurements of your body (wear a light tank or tee, we will be doing this in the workshop!), deciding how much ease works best for you, choosing the best pattern size, and altering specific garment measurements to get the best fit. We will use the Sayre Tank*, a pattern from Knitted Tanks and Tunics, as an example: With its slightly cropped length, body-skimming fit, lace yoke, and not-quite-halter styling, this tank works up quickly! (Skill level: Easy to Intermediate.)
