Knitting Gauge Demystified - A Virtual Workshop - January 25th
A Virtual Workshop with Amy Odin, KnitChats
Tuesday, January 25th from 11:00am to noon
As knitters, we all want our garments to fit just right and everything else we knit to have that perfect look! Understanding how to get this by working a gauge swatch and knowing exactly how to use it is essential. In this one-hour class, you’ll learn why we knit gauge swatches, how to knit them, and how to measure. You’ll also learn how to make adjustments to get those measurements spot on. In addition, you’ll be given basic formulas to be able to adapt a pattern to a different gauge or even design your own project!
- a knitted gauge swatch (see pre-work below)
- a ruler with markings to at least ¼ inch
- printed pages that will be emailed prior to class
- pen or pencil
- a calculator
Pre-work: Knit a swatch in a natural fiber according to the pattern provided prior to class. Hand wash and air dry.
