0539 Original Pattern Drafting Workshop


by Charlene Shafer

Written for DesignaKnit 7 but the lessons are still very relevant today.


Written for DK7 – but -while the newer versions of DK have more tools and a couple may have a new name – these lessons work very well .

This book assumes you are familiar with the Standard Garment Styling Mode. You will:

  • Start with a sweater created in the Standard Garment Styling Mode. Save and then open in the Original Pattern Drafting Mode. Save using new name.
  • Become familiar with all the tools.
  • Alter the garment to create the perfect fit and new style.
  • Select the shaping choices you prefer for each project.

Book has color illustrations included!
