Unwind 2021 is a virtual affair, these classes will be presented online. Expect more announcements around classes in the next few months.
Knitting to fit your unique shape.
Teacher: Morag McKenzie
Suitable for: Any garment knitter.
Did you know that most women’s knitting (and sewing) garment patterns are written for a B cup bust in mind? What if you are bigger than a B? Come and learn how to alter a garment to fit a fuller bust well. I’ll teach you all my personal tricks for achieving a great fit not only in the bust, but for the entire upper body.
Although this class is aimed at those with “non-standard” body types, it is for anyone who wants a great fit. Whatever your unique shape is, this class will give you the tools to alter a pattern to fit you.
Pattern Hacking 101
Teacher: Jodi Halleux
Suitable for: Intermediate knitters (you will preferably have completed at least one sweater type project).
You’ve found the perfect pattern, with just one problem…
Don’t be hampered by the exact yarn or gauge a pattern specifies. Don’t dismiss a pattern choice because one element isn’t what you are looking for. Learn the skills that will give you the confidence and ability to make something just the way you want it.
