Just mentioning the subject of “gauge” can make a knitter run for the hills, but gauging properly can help ensure that at the end of your project you don’t get a sweater you can swim in, or one that squeezes the breath out of you!
In this workshop, Tabetha Hedrick takes the frustration out of gauge swatching! You’ll learn the best methods for creating a gauge swatch, master the sure-fire ways of measuring, and above all, learn all the tips and tricks you need to ensure that your knitting comes out perfect every single time. These series of videos go in-depth on how to wash and block your swatches (and projects), as well as how the different fibres react to the various stitches, techniques, and tools available. By the end, you aren’t going to worry any more and you are definitely going to be excited to knit with a fresh, renewed view of the end goal.
You’ll also get the exclusive hat pattern featured in this workshop: Glas! Check for it under Course Downloads!

Little Basic Cardi :: In lieu of the little black dress, I’ve always had a little black cardigan as one of my wardrobe staples and feel that every knitter needs one (substitute neutral colour of your choice here). For years I resisted writing a pattern for it because it’s black and hard to photograph the details. Also, would knitters want a pattern for a basic cardigan?
My schoolofsweetgeorgia Fundamentals to Finishing Knits course was the perfect catalyst to put a spin on my idea. The cardigan doesn’t need to be black, and yes, a basic cardigan is the perfect canvas on which to practice fundamental techniques and fine finishing. I wanted this to be a pattern you would want to knit again and again, in different colours, different yarn weights, different modifications. That idea lead me to writing three separate patterns in Fingering, DK, and Worsted weight yarn.
All three Little Basic Cardi (LBC) patterns feature a range of variations for you to customize sleeve and body length, choose which side you want your buttons, and you have the option between two different shoulder constructions. All of this to offer you the opportunity to practice the different techniques in the course.
Of course, the patterns are available with extended sizing and non-gendered language. All bodies deserve their own perfect little basic cardi.
During our photo shoot we recreated my design concept drawing. Swipe left to see!
