Jean Frost, the recognized master of handknit jackets, reveals the secrets of fit, fabric and details. Custom Fit Knit Jackets is really three books in one: A tutorial on custom fitting the Master Jacket Pattern; a collection of 12 jacket silhouettes built on the Master Pattern in 10 standard sizes (or on the knitter's own Master Jacket Template) and 3 gauges; and a portfolio of knit versions of the designer details that have made the Chanel Jacket a signature piece for over 50 years: the fabrics, collars, pockets, finishes, and hand-stitched silk lining. With the customized Master Pattern, Jean Frost demystifies fit: it is determined before a single stitch is knit. The process is easy to follow, using the simplest math and graph paper. Using real-body examples, Jean shows how to correct for narrow shoulders, long arms, short or long waist, large bust, and other common fitting problems.
