Boxy Sweater with modifications

March 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Be the master of your knitting, and learn to make patterns your own. Beginning with any of Joji Locatelli’s Boxy patterns and the yarn you choose, we will learn to modify the pattern based on the fit and features you want, whether you want to knit top-down or bottom-up. The choice is yours!

Four 2 hour classes

Skills learned:

  • adjusting a pattern to work based on measurements, yarn choice and the features that you want
  • three needle bind off
  • i-cord bind off
  • binding off in rib
  • a little math and a lot of knitting!


  • Sweater quantity of yarn you would like to use – recommend DK or light worsted (such as Hazel Knits Lively DK or Miss Babs Yowza) (or whatever you have that looks fun and will block well)
  • 32” or larger circular needles in size to get the fabric you like, and 16” circular needles in one size smaller for neck.
  • Copy of one of the Boxy patterns, available on Ravelry


Bring a washed and blocked swatch in stockinette that is at least 6” by 6”. This is to get a fabric you like that will be the basis for your sweater.
