Class Title: Math for Knitters (Where Do They Get Those Numbers?)

Instructor: Edie Eckman

Overall Skill Category: Beginner to Intermediate. Basic skills needed include knowing how to: knit, purl, increase, decrease, cast-on and bind off stitches.

Class Description: This class will take the mystery out of those pesky math calculations you have to do when designing, altering or knitting a sweater. Math-phobics are welcome, and you don’t have to raise your hand in class. While drafting a basic sweater, we will calculate yarn amounts, figure rates of increase/decrease along single row, how to shape V-necks and sleeves, and stitch pattern placement. You’ll learn how a swatch can tell you how much more than what your gauge is, and what happens when your gauge is not on target. We will NOT cover sleeve cap shaping.

Materials fee: None

Supplies to Bring to Class: Calculator, paper, pencil

Pre-Class Assignment: None

Class Size: Maximum of 20 students.

Cancellations/Refunds: No changes in registration can be honored within 48 hours prior to the scheduled class.
