Using a light worsted weight yarn and a lovely top down sweater, Kiko will teach you a number of techniques for making your sweaters fit YOU and your style.  She’ll cover changing stitch patterns (she subbed in a lovely lace and texture design instead of the written cables) waist shaping, bust darts, neck line height, modifying edgings, adjusting body and sleeve length, and very importantly – how to knit your garment for the best looking finishing! We’ll be using a basic sweater pattern from The Best of Knitscene or Interweave Knitscene Fall 2008 issue which has basic and simple lines that are easy to adapt.  You can take this top down sweater and make it into anything you want – a fitted tunic length sweater, a baggy everyday pullover, or knit it as it’s shown as a stylish shaped sweater with lovely knitting details.
