All sizes, all body types. I discuss key points that everyone can use.
A System of Grading allows changing gauge in your spread sheets to create project variations.
Feel free to knit during class!
I do my classes using GoToMeeting. You will get log-in information. I prefer that I be the only one using video to accommodate varying internet speeds. You can log in from a computer, tablet, or phone. No need to call, just log in.
I’m wearing a design called Lake Alta, in Civility Sport. I have not published the design. I put it on because it was on my desk and I was on a video call (I always wear my designs!).
That’s me. Jill Wolcott of Jill Wolcott Knits. I’m totally not a real red head, but I’ve been a red head since my 20s. The Yellow is more recent. I cannot read without glasses, so I always have reading glasses on. Behind me is my white board which has an arrangement of Paper Stitches on it. The tiny purple note is my list of IT help I need from my spouse.
A System of Grading – ASOG Webinar
A System of Grading – ASOG Webinar is a free introduction to the 14-week A System of Grading course for grading knitwear. Although I specifically speak to knitting, it is appropriate to crochet as well.
ASOG Webinar is on February 18, 2020 at 10 am PST!
Inclusivity is the goal in sizing (and other things). Find out how to make the right decisions so that your work represents the sizes presented in their best possible way. A good fit is essential for true inclusivity!
In teaching I typically use examples from missy sizing, but the concepts are applicable to children, men’s, and plus- or other-sizes. I have taught a plus-size specific grading course. The sizing origin numbers are different, and the specifics may vary, but the application is the same.
Read about my teaching here. Come to the ASOG Webinar at 10 am PST (use this to figure out your time) and see if my teaching style will work for you. The ASOG Webinar is to help you decide whether the 14-week A System of Grading Course will meet your needs. Of course, you get whatever you learn in the Webinar gratis!

In the ASOG Webinar I will talk for approximately 40 minutes and do 20 minutes of Q & A.
