Knit Radar: Store Bought to Handmade

My Goal:

One day while shopping at J. C. Penny I saw this garment shown at left. My goal was to draft a new pattern to knit it in various colors because I like the style and fit..  You may ask, how?  Using a knit radar.  You too can benefit from using a knit radar to draft your own patterns!  The drop shoulder sleeve allows for more room in the tummy area.  No more mid tummy bulge in knitted garments.

What is a Knit Radar:

“The knit radar does it all… shows you exactly when and where to increase and decrease the exact number of stitches for each row as you are knitting — it shows you exactly where to start a hem, a neckline or a sleeve cuff, and when to cast off, you just can’t go wrong.”

Knit Radar Benefits:

  • You can measure a store bought garment and draft a schematic
  • You can measure a swatch and setup knit radar for knitting any yarn type, and
  • You can create multiple sizes by scaling down.
