When we heard that designer Ysolda Teague is going to be in our area in June, we jumped at the chance to schedule a class with her! Her book Little Red in the City has such helpful information on garment customization and fit, in addition to containing great patterns, that it’s become a must-have resource. The Whimsical Little Knits books are also staff favorites, filled with adorable quick projects.
In this workshop we’ll go through everything you need to successfully make perfectly fitted sweaters. We’ll cover matching the right yarn to your pattern, how to get the most out of swatching, and taking accurate measurements. Then we’ll put that information to use learning how to shape your sweater for the perfect fit and a flattering visual effect. This is a great chance to discuss the techniques and information in Little Red in the City and ask questions about shaping for your body. There will also be an opportunity to get hands on help with shaping techniques that you’d like help with, such as short rows.
Then, from 4pm – 5:30pm, Ysolda will stick around for a meet-and-greet where she’ll chat, answer questions, sign books and maybe even sit and knit.
Register quickly as we have a feeling that seats for Ysolda’s class will go quickly, and it isn’t often that this Scottish designer comes to the East Coast! You can find all of the details about the class here and can find event information here.
