Participants will learn to knit set-in sleeves—tailored to fit themselves perfectly—in this six hour hands-on session. The class will include:
An introduction to top-down set-in sleeve sweater construction
Fitting a set-in sleeve
Taking measurements and choosing a size
Making adjustments for gauge differences
Making adjustments for fitting bust and hips
Shaping the armhole and knitting a sleeve cap
Using the information from their gauge swatch and the measurements we’ll take in class, participants will complete a practice armhole, then learn how to pick up stitches and begin shaping a sleeve cap. The practice sleeve cap will be worked in Osprey, Quince and Co’s Aran weight yarn, so that most participants will have time to work through at least the upper cap shaping, if not entirely complete their practice sleeve cap.
1 skein Quince and Co Osprey in a light color; stitch markers; waste yarn; yarn needle; tape measure; non-flexible ruler, at least 6″ long; two fine straight pins; notebook and pencil
Homework is available in the shop or will be emailed when you enroll in this class.
