Personalize any knitting pattern for a perfect fit and style all your own, with expert help from Margaret Hubert!

Designers have to create knitting patterns in standard sizes, but very few people actually match up to those "average" measurements. Body shapes vary, weight fluctuates, and good fit means different things to different people; so what is a knitter to do?

Customize Your Knitting teaches you how to adjust standard patterns to fit your unique measurements. Through techniques that Margaret Hubert has used for years to teach classes on custom fitting, you can learn to adjust patterns for a perfect fit for yourself or someone else. Yarn shop instructors can use the book to teach classes for their customers.

However, fit is just one part of customizing a garment. Maybe you'd like that neckline a little higher, or you'd like a little flare to the sleeves. How about adding subtle shaping to the waist on a boxy but otherwise perfect sweater pattern? How about adding a polo-style button placket to that plain crew-neck sweater? Or add a sporty buttoned pocket to a sleeve for carrying your iPhone. It's easy to add your personal style with Margaret's tips.

Diagrams and illustrations throughout the book will help you understand body shapes and easily compare measurements. Garment construction, specific increases, decreases, and other shaping methods, as well as finishing techniques and embellishments are all explained and photographed clearly. Make every project perfectly tailored to you!

Industry Reviews

"This book teaches you how to customize your knitting for body type and also general style preference. Maybe you love the look of a particular sweater pattern but you'd prefer to add a bit of frill at the cuffs. Perhaps you'd prefer to add pockets to an otherwise ideal pattern. Not only will you learn how to adjust patterns for need-based reasons, but you'll also learn how to change them up based on preference, too." FaveCrafts.com
