Leah Learns Design

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

Tabetha Hedrick · July 9, 2020

How do you learn to design 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!

For any questions and to share knitting design adventures, come visit us in the SOS community forums! Plus, tag us on Instagram with #sosknittingdesign and #schoolofsweetgeorgia!

Following many of our online live lectures and Zoom events, we share recordings at the SOS site so members who were unable to take part live can still join in and learn along with what was discussed during the meetup. ⁠

Now available for viewing, you can find the replay video of Laura Fry's Drafts and Drafting live lecture! Laura dives into the principles of learning how to read weaving drafts with plenty of practical tips to put into practice. For example, do you know why it’s important to read the introduction in your weaving books? Each author uses different looms, which means different tie-ups. Learn more about this and much more at Laura's fabulous lecture replay at the School–direct link in bio »
