What is CustomFit?
CustomFit is a web program that makes sweater patterns especially for you – your fabric, your body, your design choices.
You don’t have to worry about changing sleeve lengths, or matching someone else’s gauge, or adding extra shaping, or any of the myriad fit issues that most of us run into.
All the patterns produced are bottom up with set in sleeves. They can be knit in pieces or mostly seamlessly. CustomFit currently assumes adult, female bodies in their pattern calculations, though men’s patterns will likely be available in the future.
What do we provide?
You can buy a CustomFit pattern through the Sow’s Ear. We provide some additional complementary services – measurements and mini-consultations, private lessons/long consultations, and knitalongs. If you just run into a minor issue, we offer free knitting advice for small questions every day after 9am.
How do I start?
Most customers will just need the mini-consultation/measurements and a pattern. Knit up a large swatch (6”x6” or larger!) and block it – wash it however you will eventually wash your finished sweater. Once you are happy with your fabric and your swatch is totally dry, bring it in! We’ll help you with the rest.
