It is all about measurements, not size. Inclusivity of your people is the key to perfect sizing.
Gauge is always a factor in doing knitwear, but it just a component piece of grading.
You name it, we can handle it. Even crochet hooks!
Time is the most important supply–and you have to commit to putting the time in to make this work.
It is always about yarn, isn’t it?
Those are grading tables that I use in my business. You may download them and use them too.
ASOG 2021 – 14 sessions, 8 payments
$840.00 / 7 days
Sign up for the free ASOG Webinar here. It will be available on Friday May 7 and Monday May 10. The Webinar is the first step in ASOG 2021. It is followed by three live sessions and 11 recorded sessions. Each is supported by a live weekly Lab where you can get answers to your questions, help solving problems, or learn more about grading and fit in general or specifics.
What is ASOG 2021?
ASOG 2021 is the latest version of A System of Grading, a system of creating grading workbooks for grading individual designs, design revisions, checking your process, aggregating your information, and generally moving concepts to concrete numbers.
This 14-session system teaches a system of building workbooks with a view to reuse and retrieval. Beginning with a simple circular cowl, the class proceeds through flat garments, dividing garments into multiple pieces, fitting the upper body, arms, creating set-in sleeves, while building a more thorough understanding of the design and pattern-making needed to create unique knitting projects designed to fit your customer.
Each week new sessions release. Start with the basics of grading, sizing, and ease, learn to use spread sheets, and work through weekly projects to anchor your learning.
Why ASOG 2021?
Sizing and fit are more important than ever. The customer is demanding greater sizing accountability, and design is opening to wider varieties of hand knits. The more you know, the more you can do! Master the structure of pattern-building and grading, and build on that with all your ideas and skills.
Where is ASOG 2021?
ASOG has been online since 2017. I have moved it to Teachable to make the logistics easier for everyone. Although most of the sessions are done via video, each week you meet with me and your classmates via Zoom to discuss that week’s sessions, get questions answered, or just talk about fit and grading. This is a rigorous course, but I am always there to help you; there is a unique Slack channel for questions and conversation as well as the Teachable platform.
