Tired of sweaters that don’t fit?

My pattern is an e-book that will teach you to knit a sweater that fits using only:

  • Stitch and row gauge, and
  • Your measurements.

Any size person, any yarn.

You will learn to:

  • determine the number of stitches to cast on,

  • work ribbing at the hem and the sweater body,

  • shape armholes, shoulders and
    necklines, and

  • pick up stitches at the armhole and
    work a top-down sleeve.

No sewing seams! No grafting!

The design is for a V-neck sweater with set-in sleeves. Extra chapters explain round necklines and cardigans, allowing endless variations.

There are extensive diagrams and photographs throughout, plus a glossary demonstrating special techniques.

There are also blank forms for taking your own measurements and calculating the numbers for your sweater.

This method is drawn directly from my youtube videos on my channel. However, I have updated some of the information in this pattern to make the process even easier.

I know this works because I have used it myself and have received many emails from readers who have used this method successfully.

I hope you will try this easy way to sweater success. If you are not completely satisfied, you have three months to request a full refund.

Happy knitting!
