Intro to Sweater Design

Knitwear designers use gauge and body measurements to create the perfect fit in a sweater, hat, or other knitted piece. Learn the magical formulas that will allow you to design your own garments or adjust existing ones with ease! No more puzzling over how to increase or decrease evenly in a single row or gradually over many rows—you’ll have the answers in moments. You’ll also learn tips and tricks that simplify the knitting and finishing process.

A handout of how to evenly place increases or decreases will be provided.


Familiarity with sweater construction preferred.
