You know the importance of stitch/row gauge in the fit and size of a garment. This class will give you tips to efficiently knit and accurately measure your gauge swatches to reveal their secrets for successful knitting results. Learn why matching someone else’s gauge can be an exercise in frustration, and how to adapt a pattern to YOUR gauge, if it doesn’t match. In class, I will show you how to create a swatch that you can trust, how to measure with accuracy and confidence, and an easy way to block it. Learn to use gauge to calculate the amount of yarn needed for any section of your project. Stitch, row and yarn gauges will all be covered. It is fun, and you will be amazed at how much you will learn about the process of swatching!
Homework will be emailed to you upon registsration.
