Do you want to come on a knitting journey with Carol? This class will help you master garment fitting and modification. We will begin with measuring and checking your gauge. From there we will examine different construction types and how to modify a pattern to fit your body. Each section of the pattern, from shoulder shaping through to body shaping and sleeve shaping will be deconstructed and examined with suggestions on how to get the fit you want.
