Reading Between the Lines: What Your Sweater Pattern Doesn’t Tell You

Lyons,Patty Reading Between The Lines

Skills Required: Some basic knowledge of sweater patterns helpful. Knitting at least one sweater is helpful but not required.

If you always follow a sweater pattern exactly, because you wouldn’t know how to begin to change it, this is the class for you. There’s a lot of information hiding between the lines of knitting patterns. Once you unravel the mysteries of the math and numbers, you will never blindly follow a pattern again.

Learn what you need to know before you start a pattern, like understanding sweater shapes, yarn substitution, how to figure your yarn amount from your swatch, what size to make, and how to read a schematic. Understand the numbers in the pattern so you know when and how you can change them.

Finally, we’ll look into some of the most frustrating pattern instructions such as “reverse shaping” and “at the same time” as well as “pick up evenly across the row” and even shaping “in pattern.” Learn the secrets hiding inside every sweater pattern!

Note:  This is not a pattern reading class.

Materials / Bring to Class:  Pencil, calculator, notepad

Homework:  None
