At our knitting retreat this past weekend I took a few hours to teach a couple of the gals how to take their measurements, how to do math for a different gauge for a sweater pattern, and then re-wrote an entire sweater pattern for the difference in stitches and rows, and adjusted for the knitter’s exact measurements; lengthen the body, lengthen the yoke (a full mosaic pattern), moved the decreases from the sides to the back to work with the shape of her bum and back.
Then, I come home yesterday and find that there is a new episode from The PassioKnit Spinner about the same thing!
Instead of fully posting a lesson here, I will happily share her great video. She is German so you’ll have to imagine she’s using inches, not cm. It’s all the same math, so no worries there!
