Knit Stretch Reductions – Sleeve Slopers
This lesson is part of our 7-part knit series. It builds upon our Intro to Knit Fabrics and our Knit Fabric Principles lesson. Once you have completed our knit torso sloper lesson, you are ready to draft a series of sleeve slopers. You will start, by first creating a Stable Knit sleeve and then learn how to reduce that block for each of the other stretch categories: Moderate Stretch, 2-Way Stretch, Super Stretch and Ribbed Knit stretch. By downloading the Fractions to Decimals Chart and our Sleeve Knit Calculations Form, we make this lesson that much easier to complete.
Add to your knit library by learning how to create a series of knit skirt and pant blocks, so that you can design all types of knit garments, no matter which stretch fabric you choose.
The sleeve sloper needed for this lesson can be found and drafted in our Pattern making lesson: Straight Sleeve Sloper. You will also need your torso sloper that was created in our lesson: Knit Stretch Reductions: Torso Slopers.
