Sweaters & Spreadsheets
Four two-hour live virtual classes with Edie Eckman. Sessions will be recorded and made available for a limited period of time. No refunds unless class minimum of 5 students is not met.
Sweater design involves math. A lot of math. Which is exactly what spreadsheets excel at. (See what I did there?) We'll start by reviewing some of the math we use to draft a sweater pattern for knitting or crocheting.
Then we'll move those formulas to an Excel or Google Sheet spreadsheet that will do the calculations.
You'll create your own high-powered "calculator" that will enable you to grade for multiple sizes at once, double-check your calculations, convert measurements to metrics, automatically round numbers, and more. Along the way, there will be plenty of discussion about the mechanics of sweaters and sweater shaping.
This class is for designers, tech editors, and anybody who wants to design a sweater for one or more sizes.
