Have you ever spent time and yarn money to knit a sweater that you never wear because it stretched, or feels funny, or makes you look massive? In Curvy Knits learn fit adjustments to waist, bust, set in sleeves, neckline and other trouble spots that will make your finished garments look wonderful. In class learn how to calculate horizontal bust darts, calculate the shape of a cap sleeve, and alter necklines. This is a fast-paced class with a lot of information but you will not be disappointed. Leave this class with more tools in your knitter’s tool box to make better fitting sweaters. Students will learn about what they like, how to choose the right pattern, how to use basic math to calculate shaping, bust darts and sleeve caps!
