Learn how to fit your custom-knit sweater if you don't have a mannequin
If you don't have a mannequin or dress form just sitting around your home, is it possible to get a perfect fit for your favorite sweater knitting pattern? The answer is yes, according to author and knitting instructor Stefanie Japel. In this video clip for Craftsy, Stefanie talks about ways to measure your sweater size using a digital photo to ensure great-fitting sweaters. Even if your body has gone through changes in size due to pregnancy, Stefanie says the fit of your sweater knitting pattern is achievable with a simple measuring tape, a white wall and a digital camera.
