Sale prices end after 5pm each Sunday (when the bricks and mortar shop closes). Please note that there is a slight delay between in-store sales and that information updating web store stock levels.

Summer Sweater Semester Pt. II – Sweaters That Fit

Posted by Arwen Golden in Uncategorized

Mer in Good Grades

We all know the feeling. Trying on clothes, wondering if we can live with a waist that sits a little too low, a bust that’s just a bit too tight. In this mass produced world, just staying covered can be a truly discouraging prospect. One of the amazing things about knitting is the ability to make a garment that fits you. Not only will something made with your body in mind feel better on, but you get the thrill of a little rebellion against a society that wants to squish you into a set of predetermined shapes.

Fit is also often what makes or breaks a sweater for us. We may not always want curve hugging, tailored garments, but handknits should come with the promise of comfort. If it slides off the shoulder, sags in the back, binds under the arms, or is just the wrong size, we’ll shed tears over our lost hours, our broken dreams of that perfect piece that we had in mind when we began. We know each set-back is a learning experience, a chance to refine, but it can still be heartbreaking.

Part II of our Summer Sweater Semester goes in depth to answer your questions about ease, fit, and how to flatter your figure. You’ll learn how positive or negative ease can effect a garment in unexpected ways, and what areas you might want to think about altering for better fit.

This lecture is full of invaluable tips for all knitters, from those wondering how to choose a first pattern successfully to experienced sweater knitters who want to modify or even design their own sweaters. Even those who prefer a relaxed fit, or a drape-y, elegant silhouette, will find their sweaters improved by an enhanced understanding of how aspects of shaping can give the knitter a better chance at finding true sweater love.
