Do you ever wonder why your favourite knitting patterns tell you to M1L or ssk? In this workshop we’ll dive into the intricacies of shaping knit fabric. We’ll practice a variety of increases and decreases and discuss the pros and cons of each style. You’ll learn how to make your shaping lean left, right, or center, and why it matters. We’ll also cover how to use shaping to improve the fit of your sweaters. This workshop will deepen your understanding of knitting, and add beautiful, detailed precision to your projects.
