Crocheting Sweaters from the Top Down with Lily Chin

World famous fiber designer Lily Chin is coming home to the NYCCG on January 19, 2008 at 9.30 a.m.  This is a six hour workshop.  


Do you hate to seam sweaters?  Want to try on your work as it progresses to ensure proper fit?  Don’t know if you have enough yarn and want to end a sweater “when it’s long enough?”  The answer to these and other questions/problems lies in creating sweaters beginning at the neck and working your way down.  This is not limited to just raglans.  We will also go beyond the ubiquitous and less-than-flattering drop-shoulder.  Learn how to deal with other fitting issues in the process as well.  You won’t have to stand on your head to make garments upside-down!


Proficiency Level:  Advanced-Intermediate, must know how to increase and decrease in all the basic stitches, have a total grasp concept of gauge with the ability to convert measurements into stitches and rows when given a gauge, be very comfortable with math, have made a few garments, be familiar with stitch charts.
