Easy Does It: Unraveling the Mystery of Ease and Sweater Construction

Have you ever knit a sweater and it didn’t fit? We’ve all heard so much about ease, but what do we do with this information? In this sweater tour lecture, Patty will walk you through a variety of sweater constructions and discuss how each sweater works. Learn how to make your own decisions about fit when you read things like “meant to be worn with 2 – 4” of ease”. Easy does it, it’s not as hard as it sounds.

Make Your Gauge Work

Make YOUR Gauge Work

You know the basics of gauge, but how do you make your own gauge work for you!  Stop trying to match the gauge exactly and learn how to knit a project to YOUR gauge. After a review of the basics, and how to make a “truthful” swatch, we’ll get to some of the trickier elements of gauge, such as pre blocked v.s. blocked gauge, hung gauge, and the difference between yarn gauge and pattern gauge. Finally, we’ll master the math of using your gauge, not just the pattern gauge. We’ll learn how to work with a different stitch gauge, and how to make adjustments to your pattern when your row gauge is off. Stop trying to match someone else’s gauge and discover the joys of making YOUR gauge work!
