With only a few days of Socktober left, at SweetGeorgia we're celebrating the cosy warmth of hand-knit socks right to the very end! ⁠

In Custom Top Down Socks for Beginners, Tabetha Hedrick @tabismiles teaches you all of the steps needed to make your own pair of beautifully fitting and cosy hand-knit socks. By the end of the workshop, you'll be able to confidently knit a pair of socks at any gauge with any yarn!⁠

First launched just over a month ago, we're happy to be back sharing even more fabulous content with you over at the Fundamentals to Finishing Knits course, taught by Holli Yeoh @holliyeoh!⁠

In this comprehensive knitting course, we began with covering the fundamentals – cast ons, tension, gauge and more, and in the newly released Module 2, Holli teaches us all about shaping in our knitting! Including increases, decreases, and short rows for shoulder shaping, Holli also talks about fully fashioned shaping, which is about making clean lines in your knit projects – providing a more polished look for your knitting, making it look more professional. ⁠

Find the newly added module over at the SOS course page – link in bio »⁠
And be sure to share your own course progress with us over in the SOS community forums or here on Instagram with #sosknitting and #schoolofsweetgeorgia!

While cropped sweaters are all the rage right now, not everyone is comfortable in them. A standard length cardigan should be a staple in all wardrobes and it will stand the test of time! The Little Basic Cardi (LBC) offers two hem lengths and three sleeve lengths for you to customize the sweater to *your* preferences.​​​​​​​​
The pattern is size inclusive with 13 sizes to fit folks with 28 to 66" (71 to 167 cm) chests plus 2 to 4" (5 to 10 cm) of additional ease. It has non-gendered language and options for buttonholes on either side of the front opening. The Little Basic Cardi is also offered in three different yarn weights (Fingering, DK, Worsted), each as a separate pattern.​​​​​​​​
The LBC was designed as a project pattern for my Fundamentals to Finishing Knits course for schoolofsweetgeorgia, giving students the opportunity to practice the many techniques and tips I present in the course. The SGY team liked the pattern so much, they are offering each yarn weight/gauge as individual patterns in their shop!​​​​​​​​

Choosing your size :: The Little Basic Cardi was designed to be worn with about 2-4"/5-10cm of positive ease (proportional to the finished measurements). But we thought it also looked cute on Charlotte, who's wearing it with almost 5"/12.5cm ease.​​​​​​​​
So how do you decide what size to knit? Measure a favourite sweater you like the fit of, or go to the store and try on sweaters until you find a fit that you like. In the changing room, lay the sweater(s) on the floor and take their key measurements to match up with the pattern schematic. Make sure you're comparing sweaters of similar weight. In other words, if you plan on knitting a worsted weight project, don't compare with very fine-weight sweaters. The thickness of the knitted fabric will play a role in how you like the fit.​​​​​​​​
A little note on ease; ease is difference between your body measurements and the sweater's finished measurements. A sweater is often larger in circumference; this is positive ease. But lots of sweaters look great if they have negative or zero ease across the bust and positive ease around the stomach and hips. Examples of garments we wear with negative ease in our daily lives are socks and underwear. In those cases, the negative ease helps them stay on!​​​​​​​​
