Do you remember the days of itchy, ill-fitting crochet sweaters? Those days are ancient history with the beautiful designs and soft, pliable yarns that work together to create sweaters that flatter your body.

Join Robyn Chachula as she creates three exclusive sweater designs in today’s most popular styles -- raglan, top-down and motif. Using written and crochet symbol diagrams, she demonstrates each stitch pattern used and explains construction techniques that will allow you to customize each sweater design to fit your size and shape.

In this class you’ll learn how to:
  • Crochet 3 exclusive sweaters.
  • Substitute yarns to achieve the same look as the original design.
  • Determine your measurements and sweater size for a perfect fit.
  • Alter the neckline and yoke to suit your style.
  • Crochet comfortable, stretchy armholes and ribbing.
  • Read crochet symbol diagrams.
  • Lengthen or shorten the body of a top-down sweater.
  • How to change a motif tunic into a motif cardigan or sleeveless top.
Class includes complete written instructions and crochet symbol diagrams to make three exclusive projects: Andi Lace Raglan Sweater, Ruby Top-Down Pullover and Brooklyn Motif Tunic.

Terrific! I loved Robin's designs and expertise in crochet. She makes everything understandable and easy. I usually don't crochet sweaters but these I will!
Thanks for a great learning experience.

This teacher is a master of her craft, I was blown away with the skills that she should me in this course. Now I see crochet with a different eye and have more knowledge to go forward with making my own crochet garments, thanks to this teacher.

Thank you for a brilliant class!

I've really enjoyed this class so far. I have completed the Raglan sweater and it turned out great! I used Bernat Handicrafter acrylic crochet thread. I did a lot of research on blocking and finally decided to steam block the acrylic thread. I am so glad I did! I held a steamer an inch above the completed work and it worked just fine, no damage. It just turned out beautifully. I wish I could post a picture to show everyone.
Really looking forward to trying the Brooklyn Motif as well.
Thanks for a great class!

Excellent class. Took into account that students could have different level of skills and explained basics really well. This is a class I will use as a reference and go back to again and again. Different methods of construction covered well. Can't wait to get started.

This was my first video class for crochet and I am so glad I purchased this class. I've been crocheting for quite a while but mostly just dabbled in small projects. Robyn got me so enthused about crochet again that I am crocheting the Brooklyn Motif Tunic now. I was never sure about blocking and gauge and she explained it perfectly. I really love the way she presents her classes and her teaching technique is so good. One thing I was impressed with, she never says, ah, and ah, anytime during the 3 + hours of the class. She gave me confidence once again to try some sweaters and ideas on how to adjust for fit. I also love the stitch diagram included with the lessons as I agree with her about trying to follow between the *.*. I wish I could crochet as fast as her! I will get there though as I plan on doing all the sweaters I can find and hope they all have the stitch diagrams too. Thanks Robyn!!!
