In this live online workshop, we learnt to make various adjustments to a knitting pattern to make sure the projects that we make look great and fit us well.

We started by discussing a reliable way to find a yarn that is similar to the yarn recommended in the pattern. Then we did a number of exercises that helped us to find a yarn substitution quickly and efficiently. We also looked into ways to plan adjustments to the texture of the future project even before we cast on stitches.

Then we talked about adjusting the size of the project to make sure we get a perfect (or nearly perfect) fit. We discussed different aspects of making a swatch and using the gauge. You might be surprised to learn that in many cases we do not need to match the gauge provided in the pattern.

Finally, we explored ways to change the shape of the project by adding increases and decreases in strategic places. We practiced the basic calculations required so that we could feel more confident in this process.

For all aspects of adjusting a knitting pattern, we used a sample pattern of a cardigan, but you can easily apply this approach to other projects.
