Learn how to customize a sweater pattern to fit any body size and shape. See how to create bust darts, decrease stitches to show off a waistline, add stitches to fit anyone’s hips, and change the length and taper of sleeves for a truly personalized knitted garment.
Stefanie will also show you how to take proper figure measurements for yourself or your garment's recipient, both vertical and horizontal and select the correct pattern size to adjust. Throughout the course, Stefanie also shares expert shaping and design tips, so that you can transform even the most shapeless of garments into a custom-knit sweater that you'll love to wear.
Stefanie also debunks the myth of the "average-sized" person, and helps you to embrace your own shape. With her guidance, you will soon be wearing a sweater that not only looks good on you, but feels good on your body.
