I’m teaching The Tailored Sweater Workshop in the greater Seattle area this Winter/March. The class is a wonderful opportunity to learn Tuulia Salmela’s top down method and embark on sweater-making for yourself! You’ll learn to make set-in sleeves top down and design and fit as you go. Please contact the shop to sign up for the class.
Sleeves are knit at the same time as the body, top down.
The Tailored Sweater Workshop
Spend a day learning The Tailored Sweater method which results in custom set-in sleeve sweaters knit seamlessly from the top-down. The method inspires confidence; every sweater you knit fits. Class time is spent making a sampler to learn the method. Price includes a CD with a detailed e-book and software by Tuulia Salmela to help you make sweaters of your own design for years to come.
Class size will be limited to 8 people.
Class work is a fast easy sample sweater and will enable you to understand all the steps in the method.
This top down set-in sleeve method makes matching patterns (lace, stripes, etc) a snap.
Class Supplies (You’ll start the small sample sweater in class)
- 1 Skein of worsted weight yarn (Cascade 220 recommended)
- Knitting needles (size that you normally use with worsted, US 7 or 8)
- Flexible measuring tape
Cast on, cast off, increases, decreases, fundamental understanding of sweater parts (body front, back, sleeves). You don't have to have knit a sweater before but are familiar with the knit and purl stitch and basic shaping.
