Great class!

Lots of great information if you want to adjust commercial patterns. I usually design my own, but I found the section on bust darts and armholes particularly valuable. Stefanie has a very easy going delivery style - all around a great class!

Knit Lab Fit Your Knit

Awesome! I absolutely LOVE the way Stefanie Japel teaches and conveys her information. This class is perfect for beginners, as well as, advanced knitters. Information is presented in several different ways for reinforcement and helps you understand how to obtain the best fitting sweater. I would purchase any additional classes that Stefanie Japel has at Craftsy. It would be great if she would consider producing a step by step class of more sweaters. :)

A great reference

I tried watching it all the way through and realized that this class is an awesome reference rather than a start to finish class. I went back and made lots of notes at various points and will be going back when I need to make adjustments on my other sweaters.
It was worth the price to me because my shape has changed so much now that I'm in my 40s, and I was able to create a sweater that fits. I'm tempted to make a new one every year :-)

This class was perfect for me, and I felt did exactly what it said it would do. As someone who has been knitting for only a few years, and was ready to make basic modifications to patters without re-working the entire thing (or messing it up!) this class gave me exactly what I needed. I found the explanations clear and the certain amount of repetition helped me commit a lot of the concepts to memory.

Stick with it

This class has a lot of repitition and information, but stick with it cause you really learn something. I never thought I could or would alter a knitting pattern, but now I know I can and I already have. Wonderful class. Cute and sweet instructor. Hope to see other classes or work shops from her.
