With her brilliant book Top Down: Reimagining Set-In Sleeve Design, Elizabeth Doherty has revolutionized the way we think of top down sweater construction. Her designs for Twist Collective, Wool People, Quince & Co, and her own Blue Bee Studio combine clean, modern style with charming details.
This October, Elizabeth joins us for two sessions of her Top Down Set-In Sleeve Workshop. Students will spend a day immersed in the mechanics of her ingenious method, and come away with the skills to create beautifully tailored sweaters. Come mingle with fellow knitters and be inspired to create!
Our own Emily Williams had a chance to interview Elizabeth last Autumn. Learn more about Elizabeth’s design process and the inspiration for the book in this illuminating Q & A. If you haven’t had a chance to peruse the book, you can read Emily’s great review of Top Down on the blog. As Elizabeth’s visit draws closer, we’ll be sharing more projects, plots, and tips. Stay tuned!
