::Virtual:: Altering Knit and Crochet Patterns


It can be hard to find just the right knitting or crochet pattern to fit your yarn, body, and fashion sense. We will go through common alterations for size, gauge, and style. This class will be useful for anyone who knits or crochets garments or accessories.

Techniques will include:

- changing patterns from working flat to in the round
- changing an entire pattern for a different stitch and/or row gauge
- adding or customizing waist shaping
- altering shoulder and neckline shaping, for example adjusting a set in armhole for a wider shoulder or changing from a crew neck to a V neck
- two methods to change the size of the entire pattern

You will receive a handout and the slides shown during class, and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

  • This is a lecture-style class so you don't need to have any tools and you are welcome to knit or crochet while watching.
  • You may want to print out the handout that will be emailed to you two days in advance and/or have note-taking supplies at hand.
