At this session with Fiona Morris, you will cover:-

  • Understanding how to size the pattern to fit you
  • Look at how the pattern is broken down into sections for the different parts of a garment and understanding different abbreviations and shaping instructions. 
  • Understand how to obtain the correct tension gauge to complete the pattern correctly
  • Understand how to cast on, work a rib, change from rib to stocking stitch, work mirrored decreases, a make 1 increase, work a shoulder cast off in steps.

During the class you will knit a sampler taking you through the various steps involved in making a garment and covering the points above.

You will need:

  • Yarn to knit the sample, DK, Aran or chunky weight
  • Needles suitable for the yarn you are using; 4mm for DK, 5mm for Aran or 6mm for Chunky
