Leah Learns Design

Follow along as Leah learns what it takes to design a sweater with the help of our design director, Tabetha Hedrick!

How do you go about designing a sweater? Where would you even start? These are the questions our video editor, Leah Churchley brought to Tabetha Hedrick when she found a cardigan she just had to make! In this series, Tabetha will be leading Leah through the process of dreaming up and knitting up a design from scratch. 

Tabetha and Leah will go over:

  • conceptualizing a design through sketching and swatching
  • determining measurements, row counts, and stitch counts
  • troubleshooting tips
  • finishing
  • taking your design further with other sizes, finalizing it for sale, etc.

We hope you’ll join us on this journey and perhaps dip your toes into the world of knitwear design yourself!
