Fit Right

A knitter who uses her time to make her own clothes should be pleased with the result and proud to wear the piece.

It should fit, it should flatter, as expected.

Too often, this is not what happens. Why? Because the knitter chooses the wrong pattern OR chooses the right pattern but follows the directions without questioning them and believes the designer has made it perfect for them and their body shape.

There are a few simple rules to follow for successful knitting: start with styles that flatter you ,knit making correct decisions for a personalized fit, This workshop covers all these decisions,and shows you how to work out your shape to flatter,and alter patterns correctly.
