When you design your own sweater you get to choose how you want your fabric to feel. Do you like an open weave or a tight warm weave or something between. Once you determine the fabric you like, it is time to gauge.
Gauge is your key to success. And you will make a huge gauge swatch -- you need an 8" x 8" swatch. In class you will read your gauge and use those numbers and your measurements to complete the template for your Designed to Fit Sweater!
