Designing Sleeves that Fit

Description: Set-in sleeves have long been considered one of the more difficult tasks in designing a sweater. Although proper fitting sleeves are challenging, there are guidelines that make this is a skill that can be learned. If you can design a basic tank top, you can design a sweater with a fitted set-in sleeve. Start with a fabric swatch, take your measurements and learn the calculations required to design a set-in capped sleeve that will fit -- every time. Class will move quickly so it is assumed that students are already familiar with basic design concepts such as gauge, ease and garment construction.
Supplies: Pencil, calculator, ruler, measuring tape and homework swatches
Homework: Create two identical 6" x 6" swatches in the yarn and stitch pattern of your choice for your sweater. Launder one swatch in the method you intend to launder the sweater.
Duration: 3 hours per session - 1 session
