Overview

You've found the perfect sweater pattern and even bought the perfect yarn. Before you spend days, weeks, or even months knitting the sweater just to find that it's too tight in the bust, rides up in front, pulls across the hips or hangs like a sack, stop and get step-by-step help from Stefanie. Learn how to customize a sweater pattern to fit any body size and shape. See how to create bust darts, decrease stitches to show off a waistline, add stitches to fit anyone’s hips, and change the length and taper of sleeves for a truly personalized knitted garment.
