Knitting to Fit Your Furry Friends
Custom sweaters for four-legged friends are among the most rewarding projects in all of knitting–but also one of its greatest challenges. How do you resize a design for a dachshund and to fit a great dane–or vice versa? How do you make something just right for a special mutt, or–if you are a brave sort–for a special kitty? Or even a special guinea pig?
In this lecture-based class, Franklin will guide you through the process of measuring, calculating, and designing simple but effective garments to suit any animal companion. It’s not just fun, it can make you stronger knitter–because these fundamental principles of knitting to fit work for humans, too!
Skill Level: This class will best serve knitters who have reached at least the advanced beginner level. Students must be fluent all in the fundamentals of knitting, including increases and decreases.
