The technique I’d like to master is knitting a sweater to fit me correctly. I’ve knit a fair number of sweaters for myself. To me sweater knitting is the peak of knitting mastery. I want to be able to see a sweater I like or take a pattern and make it so that it fits me and, the key, have it look good. I’ve read Elizabeth Zimmermann’s books so I have a general understanding of sweater construction. I’ve read Amy Herzog’s Knit to Flatter and taken the accompanying Craftsy class. I have a general idea of what would look better on my body type. It’s getting that information into a well fitting sweater that I have a disconnect. Maybe I’ll make this a goal in the future.
How about you? Do you have a technique you’d like to master? Are you a sweater expert? Have any advice?
