We’ll discuss:

  • How to choose the best sweater styles and shapes for your body.
  • How to take measurements of your body and choose the right size of the pattern you
  • want knit.
  • How to customize a sweater to your own body according to your: Waist length, arm
  • circumference, bust measurement, hip measurement.
  • How to add bust darts, waist shaping, curved hems, length to the back so that the
  • sweater doesn’t ride up.
