This is size inclusive, although I tend to talk about a relatively small range of sizes at a time. I think of the body as a skeleton, with tissue added to it that creates our unique shape.
Gauge is of primary concern with adding ease. You will learn how important ease is to this entire equation.
You may like to knit as you watch the videos.
Time is the most valuable thing we have, and this ASOG course takes a lot of time and attention. I think it will open your world!
No yarn needed for this!
I have samples done in half-size for most of the things we do in ASOG so you can see them. I love showing you how things work with my dress form.

WHY ASOG MIGHT BE FOR YOU?
Grading is almost always the thing that is the most difficult to master about designing. This is where you can find understanding, begin mastery, and open up your world as a knitwear designer, pattern writer or tech editor. A System of Grading gives you a clear path to applying the correct numbers to create garments in additional sizes.
There are so many nuances to grading properly and understanding the application of the numbers, that at times it will threaten to break your brain! If you are a tech editor, A System of Grading can help you do more than just check the numbers given to you. Fully understanding the process will make you an invaluable partner to designers, editors, and companies who may need your eye for numbers to fully sort out their patterns.
TEACHABLE, DOWNLOADS, AND LABS
Each Session of A System of Grading is recorded. You watch me go through the lessons on my Desktop or Laptop and you can see my screen and my face. In each session I will use a series of handouts and spread sheets to walk you through the class content. The handouts are all downloadable documents or files, and you will have an outline for each Session. You can open the work books on your own computer while you watch the videos.
Additionally, there are what I call Structure Videos. These are background for the project we will be tackling in each session. I suggest watching these, watching the class video, then returning to the Structure Video if needed.
Session videos will release on Teachable on Wednesdays by 9 am Pacific. There will be a live weekly Lab on Fridays at 10 am (the actual day may change based on location of students). These are really essential, but I do record them so you can go back and watch the recording.
Questions are welcome and answers will be provided! I will have a Slack Channel available to use to ask me questions between class sessions. It will be an alternate means of getting documents to you.
Each class will have some homework to practice that week’s material. Homework will be reviewed by me as soon as possible and feedback given via Slack. I also use Dropbox. You will get instructions for everything when you register!
