Although at its origin something quite different, full fashioning is understood today as the method of garment shaping that uses increases and decreases so that they are deliberately visible and add interest to plain garments. This description hardly does justice to the technique or to the elegance such detail adds to a garment. It neglects entirely both the fact that full fashioning gives the knitter considerable control over the fit of the garment and the fact that the technique is in no way limited solely to garments worked in stockinette stitch. This workshop explores what effects may be created and by which decreases and increases; when to use the shaping and how to calculate and work it; how to re-think a pattern for full fashioning; and how to use the technique to refine appearance and fit.
2 days / 8 hours per day
