What Students Are Saying About Patty's Classes

  • To anyone who’s on the fence about joining this class: Just do it! We haven’t even started the KAL, and I feel like I’ve already gotten well over the $21-worth of learning. - Lizzie

  • It is extremely hard not to write a book with all that I have learned about knitting a sweater and being able to modify the pattern to my preferences. Patty is a wonderful teacher who really encourages the knitter to try and figure things out on their own . . . but always there with her ever watchful eye. - Mary

  • The videos so far have been incredible. The way I figure it, I’ve already learned enough to feel like the class is a great big bargain. - Elizabeth

What's Included?

A fully written, and charted pattern with a full video sweater class. Includes:

  • Hours of video tutorials, as well as sweater modification tutorials for: gauge, sizing, altering length, neck, sleeves, hips, chest - you name it!

  • Ask the teacher discussion boards. I'll be here with you every step of the way. Want to share with other knitters? We also have a community group to share photos and fun.

  • Fully accessible class with subtitles in english (other languages available upon request), large text braille reader ready pattern. Pattern written and charted.

Is the class perfect for me?

Yes! If you're ready to learn!

I am often asked to name the "level" of a class. If you can knit, purl, cast on and bind off, know simple increases and decreases AND are willing to learn - YOU CAN DO IT! Don't let arbitrary labels hold you back from knitting the sweater of your dreams.
