Learn to Crochet a Sweater with the Perfect Fit

Author and Crochet Instructor, Dora Ohrenstein, will demystify crochet sweater-making, enabling you to tackle crocheted sweaters with confidence.

Learn about the various ways a sweater can be constructed, from basic rectangles to seamless top-down to fitted sweaters with set-in sleeves. Learn how to measure yourself and others. See how to draw schematics, and how to label them with measurements for neck, shoulders, bust, armhole, and length using your own measurements. The topic of ease will be covered in depth.

Each participant will make a swatch using simple stitches, determine its gauge, and learn how to use gauge to create a pattern for a basic sweater.
