Make every sweater you knit your new favorite! Author and designer Amy Herzog shows you how to fashion knitwear that's perfect for your body.
Whatever your body type, the perfect sweater is out there, waiting to be knitted. With guidance from Amy, author of the acclaimed "Fit to Flatter" blog and "Knit to Flatter" book, you will determine your body shape and gain the confidence to dress it in the most flattering way. Amy will explain how necklines, hems and sleeves alter your appearance and share with you the best designs for your body type. She'll also show you what not to wear. Once you understand what sweater designs look best, you'll learn how to take measurements and calculate for fit and ease. Amy will show you how to modify any pattern to look like it was designed just for you. Whether adding vertical darts to give more room in the bust or decreasing a pattern to show off your waistline, Amy's methodology is sure to deliver. As Amy says, "You are beautiful. Your body is perfect. Shouldn't your handknit sweaters be, too?"
