Learn many seamless or nearly-seamless constructions that are possible in knitting. Either a garment worked top down, bottom up, or sideways, the most important thing is that it must fit you properly and be perfect for your body type. We will talk about aesthetics, shape, choosing the right fit. You will make a mini sweater (one of four choices) to understand how that particular sweater is constructed. Calculations of raglan, yoke, dolman, and set-in sleeves will be part of our discussion. We also will talk about suitable yarns and, if time permits, stitch placement.
