Need help measuring yourself?
If you have knit sweaters in the past and have not been lucky with the finished product it may be because of measuring. Unfortunately, you cannot try on the sweater you see in a book before making it. Not to worry, with a proper lesson you will be a pro at measuring yourself.
The first thing to measure is you...
Take a soft tape measure (not a stiff yellow handy man’s tape measure) and wrap is around your chest. If you would like a fitted garment then measure exactly what your chest is. If you would like just a little ease then add 1 1/2 – 2” to your actual chest size. If you want an oversized garment, for example a loose cardigan, then add 4 – 5” to your actual chest size.
The second thing to measure is your garment as you are knitting...
Even though you got the correct gauge (I know all of you check your gauge before beginning), you still need to double check yourself as you knit. Half way up the back you should stop to measure. You might knit on a 16 stitch swatch differently than you are knitting on the 84 stitches of your sweater. Lay your piece on a flat hard surface (not your lap or a couch). It should stretch fairly easily to the finished chest measurement. This is also how you need to lie it when measuring your length.
