Aug 2, 9, & 16 for the CustomFit Sweater Class
How often have you wanted to knit a sweater but hesitated because________ (insert your reason why here)? Guess what? There’s a brand new way to knit the sweater you want and have it fit and YfY is on enthusiastically on-board. No more hesitations…let’s knit a CustomFit sweater!
CustomFit builds a pattern that fits YOU beautifully from hem to neck and everywhere in between.
CustomFit makes custom patterns for hand-knit sweaters. It takes your choices your body and your hand-knit fabric and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you. Design and fit expertise are built-in so you get to make all the fun choices (“I want a long-sleeved scoop-neck!”), without worrying about the difficult choices (“How much ease do I need in my waist?”).
It works like this: we take your measurements; you knit a swatch and choose your sweater elements (style, neckline, sleeve length, edgings, etc.). We put that information into our special CustomFit account and a pattern is created that is perfect for you…ta da! Your measurements are then saved forever so your second next sweater will be even easier.
At YfY, our staff has been trained in CustomFit and we are ready to help you knit a sweater that you choose and that will fit you perfectly.
