Strange Brew is a fun design your own sweater pattern by Tin Can Knits. In this class you will learn how to design your own custom motif or how to place a predesigned motif on your sweater. TCK has written this pattern for 25 sizes and worsted, dk, and fingering weight yarns so you can choose the size that fits you best and the yarn you love working with. With so many size, yarn, and color choices we will be talking about yarn choice, sizing, basic color theory, personal color schemes, and analyzing how different color combinations can change the look of your motif.
We will start by choosing yarn of 2 or more colors and swatching your design. As we progress we will go over top down and bottom up construction, motif placement, color dominance, different ways to hold your yarn, tension, and how to keeps your floats neat. At the end of class 6 you will have a fully custom designed sweater.
