Good information , well presented.
Patty Lyons' explanation of the subtleties of yarn substitution was clear and concise She is knowledgeable and presents in an easy-to-understand manner. However, I would have preferred to have her introduction take a bit less than 7 minutes. I had hoped for more content and less advertising. . Review by Peg (Posted on 4/5/2015)
Discover the magic
This webinar covers the basics of sweater design. Learn to decipher and use the schematic. Learn to draw your own if one is missing. Patty covers how to get from stitches to inches and back. I won't give everything away, but this webinar rocks. !! Q and A at the end.

Delivery method is not the greatest. I would have preferred to see her.

Important Reasons to Swatch
Know your gauge even row gauge. Part I of Patty's webinar examines the basics of sweater design and the language of knitting. Find out about the magic formula to seamlessly travel from stitches or rows to inches and back again. Learn to understand sweater schematics. Part 2 is where the fun begins.
