Understanding Ease

We have just begun to swatch for Harbor Springs Video KAL and it’s time to talk fit and the ever so mysterious “ease”.

In the last video sweater class for Costa Maya I showed the same sweater tried on several different body types (The Many Shapes of Costa Maya.) This really helped people see how the same sweater can look different AND great on a lot of different shapes and sizes.

Before we do the same thing for Harbor Springs, I want to dig into that age old knitter’s question:

What is “ease”

Substituting German Short-Rows for W&T Short-Rows

Tuesday Tip – Substituting German Short-Rows for W&T Short-Rows

Tuesday Tip copyI love short-rows. They are an amazing way to add super cool shapes to knitting. I use them a lot in my designs and I’ve enjoyed teaching them in my video knit-alongs. Last year we worked with the wrap and turn method in both the Tortola KAL and the Rising Spades KAL. The current video knit-along for Costa Maya uses German short-rows. Many knitters fell in love with this technique and now want to know…

The Many Shapes of Costa Maya

So, the Costa Maya KAL is in full swing, and I’ve gotta be honest… you guys are KILLING it!! I’m always so excited to pop on Ravelry and see how everyone’s projects are coming along. No pressure, but please update often, with this bum arm I’m living through vicarious knitting pleasure!!

The turnout for this KAL has been amazing, but just in case there are any of you lurking on the fence, let me sweeten the pot. I know that it’s always a risk to start a new pattern. It can be tough to visualize how the final will look and if it could be a good addition to your wardrobe or one of those sweaters you shove to the back of your closet. I tend to model for the KAL photos and while I’m fairly petite with a pear shape, I know there are lots of different body types and sizes out there. So today I’d like to show off Costa Maya’s versatility with the help of some of the lovely ladies at my shared office space! (Shout-out to Brooklyn Creative League!)

I’ll go first.
