In this class, we’ll embark on making a yoked sweater to fit you! Knitting from the top down with colourwork thrown in is an adventurous way to work. It’s about the thrill of a journey where you have a looser idea of your final destination. It is not for the feint hearted or lazy, but you don’t need to be a mathematical whizz or a knitting wizard to do it. There will be fun choices and tricky ones along the way (fit, colours, short-rows, to name but a few). You can choose how much (or little) planning you would like to do before you pick up your needles and yarn.
6 hours or even 12 is a drop in the ocean of the time it takes to knit as sweater, so we will mostly be discussing approach. You will start to build a palette and cast on a DK (or 4ply/fingering) weight colourwork sweater for yourself from the top down. The beauty of top down knitting is that you can try it on and tailor it to your body shape as you go along. It is the perfect system for those who like to take matters into their own hands and don’t like to be bound by row-by-row instructions. On top of the simple construction, we’ll layer our own experiments in colourwork, starting with basic geometric shapes and stray balls of yarn left over from previous projects.
Whichever level of wing-it suits your approach to knitting (and likely, life), it’s useful to start with knowing a few simple equations, measurements and principals so you can think about how they relate to each other (and your dream sweater). This class aims to send you off inspired with a good grounding in how to proceed.
