Have you ever knitted a sweater that ended up not fitting nicely? You matched gauge, and followed the pattern precisely, and it ended up too tight in the bust, or way too loose, or with armholes that were too deep? You are not alone!! There are some key measurements to look for - not only in the pattern you want to knit, but on your own body - that can make or break how the finished sweater fits you. Learn what to look for in a pattern to minimize these disappointments, how to choose the correct size to knit, and how and where to modify a pattern to end up with a sweater you adore!


PREREQUISITE:  Some sweater knitting experience, working a gauge swatch, basic knitting skills.

HOMEWORK:  Bring sweater pattern (or patterns) you wish to make. Homework: measure cross back and upper chest (or have a friend in class help you measure).

How to measure cross back: at shoulders, measure straight across from shoulder joint to shoulder joint (where a t-shirt sleeve seam should hit you).
How to measure upper chest circumference: directly under the armpit, measure straight across the back, under the arms, and angle the tape measure upwards to measure across the upper chest above the bust.
