Workshop 24: Getting into Garments (Morris & Sons)

  • 3 Jun 2023
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • 220 Pitt Street, Sydney NSW
  • 15


  • 50% discount for Morris & Sons customers using provided promo code. The regular price of this workshop is $300.

Using Susan’s patterns, attendees will learn how to work with crochet garment patterns to achieve great fit for YOUR body! Come away with the principles of “Crochet Fit-Ness” to apply to other patterns.

Before the conference students will receive:

  • sizing & yarn information, schematic diagram and swatching instructions for all 3 designs
  • individual coupon code to purchase all 3 patterns from Ravelry as a discounted bundle.

Students will choose 1 of these designs to work with and make 2 swatches to bring to class (using indicated hook and yarn, or closest yarn substitute that you hope to use for the project).

This is a hands-on workshop to prepare your garment project for “Crochet Fit-Ness” success (but does not involve much crocheting during the session – it's more about practical measuring, math, learning factors that affect fit-ness and applying learned principles).

The class will combine group discussion with some individual feedback/advice & the practical activity of taking body measurements and be supported by Power Point slide presentation/projected laptop display.

During the workshop students will receive:

  • worksheets for a systematic approach (and examples of math)
  • feedback on swatches (gauge/stitch technique)
  • tips for how to take body measurements and understand sizing
  • information re factors affecting fit (includes handout)
  • slide presentation with support material as we move through the steps/activities and group discussion.

At the end of the class students will:

  • have the tools and knowledge for great “Fit-Ness” of their chosen design & be ready to dive in to making their project with confidence!
  • broader learning of all principles from group discussions regarding all 3 garments.
