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 todays 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 youll 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.

The class is great, the instructor greater. I enjoyed every inch of the lectures. Alot of things make sense now and I'm a better crocheter because of her class

This is an excellent class and the instructor provides instructions very clearly and easy to follow. I'm very glad I bought it. I like the instructor and the projects. I made Andi Lace Raglan Sweater and hardly wait to make other 2 sweaters (Ruby Top-Down Pullover and Brooklyn Motif Tunic).

This was an excellent class. The instructions are very clear and accurate. The instructor is very knowledgeable. I purchased this class some time ago and never got around to actually taking the class. I am glad I did. Very nice. Can't wait to start on the other two sweaters. I completed the Andi Lace Raglan Sweater and it is beautiful! Thank you so much!

I cannot recommend Robin Chachula's crochet classes enough. She is a fabulous instructor, very clear and you can tell she has a real passion for the craft. This is the second class I have purchased with Robin as presenter and both are equally good. The camera angles are brilliant so that you can see really clearly. I love that Robin tells you often that it is okay to change little bits of the pattern here and there to make it your own. She is very inspiring. So much so that I want to try so many of her designs and the wonderful stitches she has created in her books. Please keep more classes coming.

Absolutely wonderful class! Finally I have made a well fitting top down sweater! And with this class I can say... it was actually easy!
Robins pattern instructions were flawless and her own teaching skills are on point with the pattern so it's all so easy to *get it*
I look forward to making the other two sweaters. I'm a big Robin fan now and plan to buy more of her classes if they are something I want to add to my skills.
Thanks for an excellent class!
