Personalize any knitting pattern for a perfect fit and style all your own, with expert help from Margaret Hubert! Designers have to create knitting patterns in standard sizes, but very few people actually match up to those "average" measurements. Body shapes vary, weight fluctuates, and good fit means different things to different people; so what is a knitter to do? Customize Your Knitting teaches you how to adjust standard patterns to fit your unique measurements. Through techniques that Margaret Hubert has used for years to teach classes on custom fitting, you can learn to adjust patterns for a perfect fit for yourself or someone else. Yarn shop instructors can use the book to teach classes for their customers. However, fit is just one part of customizing a garment. Maybe you'd like that neckline a little higher, or you'd like a little flare to the sleeves. How about adding subtle shaping to the waist on a boxy but otherwise perfect sweater pattern? How about adding a polo-style button placket to that plain crew-neck sweater? Or add a sporty buttoned pocket to a sleeve for carrying your iPhone. It's easy to add your personal style with Margaret's tips. Diagrams and illustrations throughout the book will help you understand body shapes and easily compare measurements. Garment construction, specific increases, decreases, and other shaping methods, as well as finishing techniques and embellishments are all explained and photographed clearly. Make every project perfectly tailored to you!

Take charge of the fit and details of your crocheted garments, with guidance from needle art designer Margaret Hubert! Designers have to create crochet patterns in standard sizes, but very few people's bodies actually match up to those "average" measurements. Customize Your Crochet teaches crocheters how to adjust standard size patterns to fit their unique measurements. The techniques and processes taught in this book are the same ones that designer Margaret Hubert has used for years to teach classes on custom fitting. With this book, individual crocheters can learn to adjust patterns to fit themselves and the others for whom they crochet. But Customize Your Crochet goes beyond a basic, good fit to help the crocheter create a truly custom garment. Maybe you'd like that neckline a little higher, or you'd like a little flare to the sleeves. With this book, you can add individual details and give your crocheted creations personal style. Diagrams and illustrations are used throughout to explain body shapes and make comparing measurements simple. Step-by-step photography shows the details for garment construction, specific increases, decreases and other shaping methods, as well as finishing techniques and embellishments. Jump in and be confident that your next project will match your shape and style to perfection!
