If you’re a knitter, chances are you’re as excited as us about Vogue Knitting LIVE. Beyond looking forward to exploring the marketplace’s new yarns from around the world, we’re hoping to catch the designer fashion shows and the knitted art gallery. And we’re definitely delighted about the hand-knitting workshops, as our very own knitting instructor, Stefanie Japel, will be teaching Fit Your Knits and Design Your Own Textured Beret live and in-person on January 18th and 19th!
Whether you have been inspired by Stefanie’s book, learned from her online classes or purchased one of her patterns, you know firsthand that she is both a talented knitter and an excellent teacher. So if you will be in New York and are interested in having a ton of fun while learning expert shaping and design tips, you are in luck.
Fit Your Knits will be taught Friday January 18 from 9:00am – 12:00pm and Friday January 18 from 5:30pm – 8:30pm. We all know that the “average sized” person doesn’t really exist. Join Stephanie to learn how to make garments you can actually wear by adjusting patterns to perfectly fit your body’s unique shape.
And complement any outfit with a stylish beret, this winter. In Design Your Own Textured Beret, Stefanie will help you demystify the knit beret, breaking it up into manageable design segments. You’ll see how to use a repeatable wedge-shaped diagram to create the slouchy, textured hat of your dreams again and again. This class will be held on Saturday January 19 from 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm.
When asked about her upcoming live classes, Stefanie said, “I’m very excited to teach at VKL in New York City! Teaching live gives me a chance to meet lots of my virtual students in person. It’s always wonderful to put a face with a name, so I hope you’ll join me if you’re able to!”
There are still a couple of spots open in her classes, but they won’t be available for long, so click here to sign up.
While we are on the topic of Vogue Knitting…if you haven’t already, check out Craftsy’s new class with Vogue Knitting Editor, Carla Scott, I highly recommend it. In Custom Cabled Pullovers, Carla will teach you how to design your very own cabled pullover. Together you’ll walk through everything from choosing the correct yarn to professional finishing techniques like blocking, seaming and picking up stitches for the neckline. She undoubtedly sets you up for Vogue style success with this class!
