Joji Locatelli and Veera Välimäki: Knit Your Perfect Sweater

Knit Your Perfect Sweater

A sweater has to fit you correctly: its perfect fit, your style, the right looseness, its length and the details that make you want to wear that piece every day.

Knowing how to manage and modify all of these features will help you realize your perfect sweater closet. This workshop will deal with styles and body shapes, you will learn how to measure correctly and how to choose a size of any sweater pattern to fit you well.

modifications, how to achieve a perfect fit and how to customize your garment to give it a unique look.

The goal is for you to go home with all the tools and confidence you need to successfully make sweaters, whether using that basic pattern or any other pattern you choose.
