Sizing Knitwear Patterns

with Faina Goberstein
Whether your goal is to sell online, get published, or knit a sweater to fit, with Faina's expert grading tips, you'll be on your way to pattern success!

Knitwear designer and math professor Faina Goberstein walks you step-by-step through every calculation involved in grading a range of sizes, from the initial gauge swatch through shaping a garment and calculating yardage. You will conquer your pattern-grading fears and finish with a pattern that's ready to knit, and the knowledge and tools to use these skills for years to come.

"Faina is a wonderful instructor, she's incredibly good at explaining things that I never in a million years would have thought I would understand ... The biggest roadblock for me and getting my designs out of my head has been the math and the why and how behind it all. She explains everything beautifully. I am so happy that I took a chance on this class! Can't wait to get my patterns finished! :)"
