PATTY LYONS: EASY DOES IT (knitting/crochet) - Wednesday, October 23 from 6-8pm CT (via Zoom)


Have you every knit or crocheted 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 (set in sleeve, raglan, yoke, drop shoulder, modified drop shoulder and dolman) and discuss how each sweater works with bust, armhole and shoulder. The armhole fit can be the most confusing when looking at sweaters other than the set-in sleeve. Learn what is a high chest measurement and when to use it. Most importantly 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.

Class will be held via Zoom from 6-8pm CT (7-9pm ET; 5-7pm MT; 4-6pm PT). Class will not be recorded.
