How many times have you chosen the “perfect” pattern, only to discover it’s not as perfect as it could be? The key to a great fit, and a final garment you can be proud of, often lies not in altering a knitting pattern, but in choosing the correct one in the first place. Join Kate Atherley as she discusses how to understand what a pattern is really telling you about fit, how to choose a pattern that addresses your particular needs, and how (and when) to make alterations for better fit and personal style.
