One of the things that can make or break a sweater is your armhole depth. If it’s too tight, your sweater will bunch under the arm (not to mention be very uncomfortable), if it’s too loose your sweater can look sloppy.
On my Ravelry group we are getting ready to start the Corcoran Knit Along (starting June 20th.). The KAL will be filled with video tutorials and how tos (exclusive to the KAL participants) including one on how to read a schematic and choose the right size.
Choosing the right size is the most vital step to a happy sweater, and a very important element of that is understanding . . .
How to Measure Armhole Depth
I finally unpacked (okay, it takes me a while to recover from back to back California trips), and another amazing Vogue Knitting Live, is finished (is it November yet and time for the next one?)
For those of you following along, you might remember that at VK Live NYC (“In which Patty ventures to Manhatten, teaches 165 students, loses her voice and is saved by her friends and the staff of Vogue Knitting Live.”) I had a bit of a rough time, but not is sunny California!

Welcome to my very first KAL!
I am so excited to be running my first (of many) KAL’s on my Ravelry group. There will be tons of teaching and fun along the way. Think of it like a sweater class for the price of a pattern! Not only that, I’ve arranged for the wonderful yarn store FiberWild to be our official yarn supplier for our KAL yarn (at an amazing discount, plus free shipping on orders over $75!).
$7 – Use promo code: Cor2016 during the presale period before June 20th and get 10% off!

So without further ado . . . introducing
Corcoran 2.0 KAL
For a while now I’ve been writing a column for Creative Knitting called Patty’s Purls of Wisdom. Knitter’s send in their questions, ala Dear Abbey, and I answer them. It’s full of all kinds of knitting advice, this knitter asked a brilliant question that is more complex than you think.
