And now it is here. (Click to enlarge the preview photos.)
The Tailored Sweater is a 38-page PDF tutorial on how to knit seamless garments (sweaters, T-shirts, cardigans, dresses etc.) with set-in sleeves from the top down. The tutorial comes with an Excel spreadsheet, which creates patterns based on your measurements and your gauge.
The method includes set-in sleeves with the sleeve caps worked simultaneously with the body. The number of stitches to pick up is very small. Sweaters knitted with this method have no seams to sew, which means, when you have cast off your stitches and woven your ends in, you're ready to wear it!
You will learn the steps of the method one by one, with an included pattern for a sample sweater. When you're ready to design your own sweaters, you will insert your measurements and gauge into the spreadsheet, and it will create a pattern for you! Use the spreadsheet over and over again - and get a perfect fit every time.
I have written this tutorial for my fellow knitters who are interested in trying new designs and new ways of constructing garments. I sincerely hope you will find it to be of use! I have done my best to bring you a top-quality tutorial and spreadsheet, but if you notice a problem, please let me know. Thank you for your support!
