1.1 Conceptualization

Tabetha Hedrick January 24, 2023

In 1.1 Conceptualization, Tabetha chats with Leah about how to start thinking about what features she wants her garment to have, start some sketches and swatching to get a better picture of what the finished product will look like.

Watch the video to follow along as Leah shares her sweater inspiration and her chosen yarn, SweetGeorgia Yarns Superwash DK. Then, learn from Tabetha the process of conceptualization, research phase and swatching. Then is time for some planning and homework and finally, Leah’s recap on her homework.
