A Brand New Class, A Brand New Sweater (or sweaters!)

I’ve been hard at work on a new idea for a video sweater class, and not only would it be wonderful to see a variety of sizes knit up for the launch, but I’d also LOVE to test out an idea for a custom spread sheet for creating your own sizes.

All testers chosen will use their own yarn, or order one of the KAL yarns (Valley Hawley or Tahki Whistler). You will keep your own sample.

If chosen, you’ll be provided with a tester agreement with more detailed information on photos and timing. Testers should provide a finished photo of the sweater being worn (not just on a dress form.) This can be on you or on the person you are knitting


This fall I will be launching a new video sweater class on education.pattylyons.com. This will be a bit different than any other class. There will be two options: NOTE: Only open for 48″ – 61 1/2″ / 122 – 156 cm

  1. Follow one of the 10 pre written sizes  -Bust (after seaming):30 ½ (34 ½, 37 ½, 41 ½) (44 ¾, 48, 52) (55, 58 ½, 61 ½) /77 (88, 95, 105) (113.5, 122, 132) (140, 149, 156) cm.Length: 22 ¼ (23, 23 ¾, 24 ¾) (25 ¼, 26 ½, 27 ¼ ) (28, 28 ¼, 28 ¾) / 56.5 (58.5, 60.5, 63) (64, 67.5, 69) (71, 72, 73) cm.
  2. Work with an excel spreadsheet to create your custom sizes.


The testers will be working on the education platform to get access to the pattern in progress, charts, videos and notes.

The test will start in early Aug and run for six weeks


  • Must be able to knit Brioche stockinette for hem and cuffs, and brioche rib in the round for collar (the full video class will have lessons, the testers will have very limited videos in progress).
  • Should have previous sweater knitting experience.
  • Should be comfortable with deadlines and able to complete a simple sweater (Brioche trim, stockinette body) in six weeks.
  • Able to keep excellent notes, and photo documentation along the way.



  • All testers will receive the final tech edited pattern
  • The full video sweater class with lifetime access.
  • $20 credit to the education platform to be used on any project or live class.
