Description

It is one thing to decide to respect the body you have (instead of the body you wish you had); it is another thing to know how to create clothes that actually fit it. Part math, part self-love journey, this body-affirming class will teach you the skills to approach knitting as a practice of acknowledging, honoring, and clothing your unique body.


NOTE: This is a live online class hosted on Zoom. You will receive an email with a Zoom link before the start of class.


Required skills:

  • Knit, purl, increase/decrease using k2tog and ssk
  • Recommended but not required: experience knitting at least one sweater from a pattern from start to finish

What you'll learn:

  • How to recognize underlying fit issues that make you feel un/comfortable in clothes and find solutions
  • How to apply a body positive perspective to questions of “comfort”
  • How to read a gauge swatch and understand what those numbers actually mean for sizing/fit
  • How to identify the most common types of sweater construction and the unique fit issues for each type 
  • How to select the best size for your body/comfort in a knitting pattern
  • When and how to use some of the most common adjustments in knitting, such as different kinds of bust darts, waist/belly shaping, and shoulder/bicep adjustments
