No matter how well you knit, if the sizing is wrong, nothing works. In Good Measure, Deborah Newton, knitting expert, designer, and author of the books Finishing School and Designing Knitwear, teaches how to personalize any knitted garment pattern to achieve a perfect, flattering fit for every shape and size. This indispensible reference covers every aspect of fit, including how to properly analyze a pattern for customization, make alterations in a project as needed, determine proper ease in every area of a garment, choose which fibers work best with a particular design, and so much more. Including 24 beautiful patterns sized XS to 2XL, all shown on a full range of different body types, Good Measure is the invaluable resource every knitter needs to ensure a perfect fit every time.
