Knit to Flatter

Whatever your body type, the perfect sweater is out there, waiting to be knitted. With guidance from Amy — author of the acclaimed “Fit to Flatter” blog and book, “Knit to Flatter” — you will determine your body shape and gain the confidence to dress it in the most flattering way. She will explain how necklines, hems and sleeves alter your appearance and share with you the best designs for your body type. She’ll also show you “what not to wear.” Once you understand what sweater designs look best, you’ll learn how to take measurements and calculate for fit and ease. As Amy says, “You are beautiful. Your body is perfect.” Shouldn’t your hand-knit sweaters be, too?
