I’m really happy to be able to tell you that my two craftsy classes are now live!
The first class is Celtic Cables and it will work you through how to work cables and read cable charts. In addition to this you’ll get the exclusive Portulaca Cardigan that was designed just for this class. The class is set up like a full cardigan knit along (KAL) working you first through measuring yourself and choosing the perfect size. Then helping you decide if there are any small adjustments you’d need to make for your body size. From there we’ll work through every step of the cardigan, swatching, casting on, working the body, sleeves and then joining it all together for the yoke.
If you’ve never incorporated cables in garment knitting this is a great introduction or perhaps this is your first cardigan? The class is nicely set up for helping knitters along – you watch the video and then you can ask me and your fellow knitter questions. You can also jump in and help other knitters out if you’ve got answers or suggestions for them. All projects that knitters are working on can be linked to the class so you can see what other knitters are doing in the class as well.
The second class is actually a free class on Short Rows. As many of you probably know already I’m fairly fond of short rows. There are many, many ways of working short rows and in this class I talk about a few different ways of working them. But more importantly I talk about how to break a short row down so you can see exactly how it works and what you’re trying to do with it. This can make a lot more sense of short rows! The final two classes cover different things you can do with short rows. We look at shoulder slopes and set in sleeves using short rows as well as creating short row bust shaping. Now do be aware that as this is a free class I won’t have any interaction in the class. You can still talk with other knitters in the comments though and discuss how you’re using short rows in your projects.
