About needle knitting "online" basic course

April 28, 2020

This is Tokuko. Stick knitting ′′ Online ′′ Basic course for sale last weekend. As usual, I received a lot of questions, so I decided to write another blog.
This time it's about whether learning to draw and calculate will help you knit a sweater that's exactly what you envisioned and the right size for you.

First of all, I would like to talk about myself.
I design a lot of things every year, such as amirisu magazines, publications, sweater clubs, New Year's kits, etc. How do you design?

  1. Find the source of the atmosphere and image you want to create.
  2. try to draft
  3. Taking a gauge and calculating, trial knitting the important part of the design
  4. I'm going to start the production. However, the gauge is often out of order or it doesn't turn out the way I envisioned it, so if it's a difficult design, I end up knitting two sweaters.

That's the flow. Yes, unfortunately, even if you know how to draw and calculate, if you don't have enough experience to make threads or shapes, you end up knitting two sweaters.
What I'm trying to say is that drafting and calculation are the first steps of design, and unless you learn them and use them to knit many sweaters, you won't be able to master them. That's the reality. Disappointed?

However, everyone is doing various things randomly without understanding the initial stage. In terms of games, it's like going on a journey without even wearing the basic tools.
However, after learning the basics of calculation, when I set out on a journey to knit a sweater, my experience points just build up on top of the foundation, so the more I knit, the more I improve.

Is there a version of that usual way of doing things?
That technique can't be used on the hem.
I agree with the designer about the arm circumference.

You can find learning like this no matter what you knit. Even if you buy a pattern and knit it, your perspective should be completely different from before.
If you know the drawings and calculations, I think you'll be able to knit a sweater exactly the way you envisioned it and in the right size for you in a short amount of time.
This course will teach you how to do that. Think so and participate.

You can ask me questions as much as you want in the 5 lectures. I don't say stingy things like taboo because it has nothing to do with this course. I would like you to take this opportunity to solve that usual mystery and open a new door.

We are waiting for you to join us.
