This pattern is available for $14.99.

This pattern is part of an e-book, “The Sweater with the Best Fit Ever!” You may purchase it by buying the book.

If you’re the kind of knitter who can pick up any sweater pattern, and make a sweater that fits beautifully, then you may not need this book.

If you’re a brand-new knitter, you can certainly make this sweater, but this book is probably going to overwhelm you unless you have a more experienced knitter helping you.

If, however, you’re a knitter who’s had issues over the years with side seams going askew, sleeves being too long or too short, hems being too tight or too loose, shoulders drooping, the bustline too tight or loose--and the list goes on--then this book might be just what you’re looking for.

The Sweater with the Best Fit Ever! will show you how to calculate sweater fit from beginning to end, over every part of your upper body. You’ll take detailed measurements and will use them all to calculate a fit that has ease exactly the way you prefer it. You’ll need to do math, but I’ll take you through it as gently as possible, using tables that will guide you through.

When you’re done, you’ll be able to use this book to fit any other sweater you’d like to make! You’ll truly understand fit.

The book was born from many years of teaching sweater classes at my yarn shop, and wanting to get fit truly working for knitters. It’s divided into these chapters:

Chapter 1: Measurements
Chapter 2: The back to the underarm
Chapter 3: The front to the underarm
Chapter 4: The lower sleeves
Chapter 5: The set-in sleeve
Chapter 6: The yoke

Coming this summer is Chapter 7: The raglan
Coming next year is Chapter 8: Variations on a theme (how to change your ribbing styles, how to make pullovers instead of cardigans, and anything that seems to come up that people want to modify).

I’m going to call this book a Beta version until all the chapters are done, and for now, it’ll be listed at $14.99. Later, the price will go up to $24.99. You’ll receive all the chapters if you purchase this pattern.

This book has been tested by many knitters in my store, but I plan to keep refining it. While it’s in Beta, expect frequent updates!

Please join me on Instagram (@reallyclear) or Facebook (Really Clear Designs) or my Ravelry group (Fans of Really Clear) to share your experiences with this book and to show off your sweaters!

I’ve worked hard on this project over the last 4 years and have gained more knowledge about fit than I ever dreamed possible. I’m so excited to share this work with you now! And may all your sweaters fit from now on.
