Course Description

If you design custom knitting patterns, but dread calculating slopes and sizing, this is the class for you. Knitwear designer and math professor Faina Goberstein walks you step-by-step through every calculation involved in grading a range of sizes, from the initial gauge swatch through shaping every element of a knitted garment and calculating yardage. You will conquer your pattern grading fears and finish with a pattern that's ready to knit, and the knowledge and tools to use these skills for years to come. Faina's Gita cardigan pattern, designed exclusively for Craftsy, is included with the class. Using Gita as an example, Faina sets up a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet and shows you how to harness its powerful features to do all the math. She'll be right by your side ready to answer questions on the Craftsy platform if you get stuck! Use the 30-second video repeat to replay segments you don't understand, take video notes to mark the ...
