Top-Down Sweaters That Fit

~ with Lissa Staples!


Lissa Staples has been successfully knitting sweaters for herself and her four boys (husband included) for decades. She continually comes back to Ann Budd’s design methods, and for this class will be introducing intermediate to advanced knitters Ms. Budd’s technique from her book, Top-Down Sweaters. This wonderful resource accommodates any gauge, any yarn and has done the math for you with an easy to follow system. The technique includes seamless yoke, raglan, set-in sleeve and saddle-shoulder styles in multiple sizes (children-adult). Learn how to modify your garment for your own body, how to incorporate a stitch pattern or multi-stranding, using Ann Budd’s base to work from. We’ll talk about troubleshooting, ease, weights of yarn, drape and much more. Enjoy the freedom to think creatively with your sweater designs without worrying about fit.

Class is limited to 8 people.
