CustomFit Sweater Workshop
Have you ever wondered why the sweaters you make don't fit the way you'd like them to? Or been stumped about how to find a pattern that has shaping in all the "right" places? Thanks to Amy Herzog's CustomFit program, these questions and more will be answered as you make a sweater that you'll love to wear. In this hands-on workshop, you'll learn how to take proper measurements and why gauge is critical to your success. You'll learn lots of different shaping methods, and how they work to create the most customized fit. As you work each piece, you'll have a complete understanding of how sweaters are constructed and assembled, and as your reward, you'll end up with a perfectly-fitted garment.
