Knits That Fit: Instructions, Patterns, and Tips for Getting the Right Fit

Knits That Fit: Instructions, Patterns, and Tips for Getting the Right Fit Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Stop following, start knitting!

 

When you lovingly make something stitch-by-stitch, it shouldn’t fit like it came from a department store. However, that’s exactly what happens when you knit to fit a general size instead of your actual measurements. In Knits that Fit, you will learn how to break free from following a pattern word-for-word and start making small changes to tailor your knitwear.

 

It’s not hard, either! You’ll be walked through all the essential ins-and-outs of taking measurements and basic pattern alteration. Before you know it you will be able to tweak nearly any pattern to better fit your unique shape.

 

The accompanying TK patterns in Knits that Fit include short-sleeved tops, pullovers, and cardigans from top knitwear designers like Lily Chin, Annie Modesitt, Berta Karapetyan, Sally Melville, and others. Of course, each of the patterns is ready to be customized by you for the perfect fit—information on shortening or lengthening has been built right in!

 

Whether you’ve knit one sweater or ten, this is a book that will change the way you see patterns and the way you knit sweaters.
