By the end, you’ll know how to add a high-quality personal touch to all your pieces. Give your craft a signature style and create knitwear patterns that reflect your ideas and personality.

Meet your teacher for the course, Simone Ryan. She tells you about her professional career as a knitwear designer and knitting teacher, as well as the influences that have inspired her work and shaped her style.

Begin with an overview of the course materials, looking at different yarns and specific knitting tools. Find out why it’s important to make a gauge before you start stitching and learn some concepts that are essential for your project, including the raglan increase, short rows, and how to read a pattern.

Once you’ve got the basics, move on to the design phase. Simone walks you through each step of her process, from where to find ideas to how to calculate yarn lengths for your piece. She also shows you how to make your own knitwear patterns using the online tool Stitch Fiddle.

Now grab your needles and get to work on your sweater! Start by knitting the collar with shorts rows followed by the first raglan stitches
for the yoke. Then work on the sleeves and the body separately.

Finally, Simone teaches you how to tuck in the loose ends when you’ve finished knitting and gives you some advice on the best way to care for your sweater. She rounds out the course by sharing some ideas on how to further customize your garment or dive right into another project with your newly learned techniques.
