Description

Math… love it or hate it, math is an essential part of every stitcher's life and in this class we’ll have you geeking out on crochet and knit math with our super easy methods for everything from averaging the number of decreases to calculating your gauge, figuring yarn amounts for your next project to… well… even altering existing or writing your own patterns! That's right… we're going to unveil the secrets that we use every day in our design studio to create everything from afghans and hats to runway couture. You’ll have more OH! moments than an herbal shampoo commercial!  

Goals:

  • Calculate area of a project to determine the amount of yarn needed
  • Average increases and decreases evenly over any number of rows without making your head hurt   
    Magically turn a swatch into a garment! (okay… it’s not magic but it is pretty darn amazing)
Experience:   Understanding of basic math skills (addition, subtraction, multiplication, long division). Must know how to read a written pattern and should have a basic understanding of how a garment is put together (i.e. A garment is made up of separate parts that are put together to make one finished wearable).

Participants will primarily be sitting throughout this workshop.
