MY FIRST CUSTOMFIT SWEATER WORKSHOP
CustomFit makes custom patterns for hand-knit sweaters. It takes your choices, your body, and your hand-
knit fabric and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you. Design and fit expertise are built-in, so you get
to make all the fun choices ("I want a long-sleeved scoop-neck!"), without worrying about the hard ones
("How much ease do I need in my waist?"). CustomFit builds a pattern that fits beautifully from hem to
neck, and everywhere in between.   It works like this: we take your measurements (just once), you knit a
swatch and choose your sweater elements (style, neckline, sleeve style, edgings, etc.). We put that
information into our special LYS CustomFit account and create a pattern that is perfect for you. Your
measurements are saved forever, so your second sweater is even easier!  Includes a  Knit to Flatter
overview, measurements, swatching and good fabric. Bring back swatches on the second day and then we will
design your sweater and create your pattern.
Dates:  Saturday, April 11 & 18; 1 pm - 3 pm
or by appointment Thursday and Friday afternoons   Cost:$30
