Write a review


Please purchase this lesson separately.

We have created a Q&A due to the large number of questions we receive. Please see here first.
I also write a blog . Please use it as a reference for your course.

In this course, you will learn how to draw and calculate set-in sleeve sweaters, as well as top-down calculation methods, which are popular overseas, and how to think about them.
Once you are able to make drafts, you will be able to knit a size that fits you with your favorite design, and you will also be able to understand where to modify existing patterns to make them fit your body. prize.
In addition, top-down can be knitted only by calculation without drawing.
I hope you will experience the joy of being able to calculate and knit what you like by yourself.

This is the first time I've dropped what I've been doing face-to-face until now online. The main difference is the specialization in drafting and calculation. Of course, if you actually knit it, you will understand it better, but it is difficult to see the knitted fabric on the Internet environment, so this time I only made drawings and calculations.
I think it's perfect for those who want to study drafting and calculation efficiently.

This is a lesson that is usually only held in Tokyo and Kyoto, so please join us!

It's over the screen, but I want to teach you hard as usual! Please join us.
