Join seasoned instructor and fit expert Sally Melville as she teaches you to customize your sweater fit using precise tweaks to your patterns.

Want to substitute in one of your favorite yarns for your project? You'll find out how to regauge a pattern so that you still achieve the right size for you. And for a tighter or looser garment, Sally will teach you about the concepts of pattern size and ease.
