Round yoke sweaters are flattering and rewarding to knit-once you understand the shaping details!  In this class, we will focus on top-down construction and and discuss shaping the yoke and underarms for a well-fitted and comfortable sweater.  The first half of this class will cover the techniques of increasing and decreasing, the math behind this type of construction and ways to customize the fit of your sweater.  Once you have watched a yarn, stitch and color pattern, you will be able to plan a custom-fit yoke using Anne's worksheet! So bring your swatch, (or work with hypothetical numbers) because stitch and row gauge are equally critical when planning a yoke.  The second half of our class will continue to build on the morning's skills as we talk about stitch pattern choices and some basic color theory suggestions to tailor your design to your own personal taste.

NOTE: This is a six-hour class with a one hour lunch break from 12:00-1:00

HOMEWORK:Using any weight of yarn (one that you enjoy working with) and appropriately sized needles, cast on, knit and block a 4"x4" square in stockinette stitch. Bring this swatch to class

   SUPPLIES: Bring a notebook, pencil, calculator(one on a Smartphone is fine),and  tape measure. Optional:Yoke sweater pattern(s) that you have questions about or  might want to knit. Stitch patterns( lace, cables, colorwork, textural) that you like and might want to incorporate into a yoke.
