CustomFit Knitalong at Knitting at Large

I'm sure you've already heard about Amy Herzog's new knitting software, CustomFit. As her website puts it:
CustomFit makes custom patterns for hand-knit sweaters. It takes your choices, your body, and your hand-knit fabric and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you. CustomFit makes a sweater that is the correct size. From hem to neck, and everything in between.

The software takes your measurements and gauge and produces a pattern made just for you. You may still want to make mods to the pattern based on your particular shape (for example, you may want more ease below your bustline), but CustomFit will do all the math for waist shaping, bust darts, and more. Plus you can use whatever yarn or gauge you wish.

Starting December 1, the Ravelry Knitting at Large group is going to do a CustomFit KAL. Come join other ample knitters in making their first CustomFit pattern. Share your experiences and suggestions, get help and advice, and just hang out with your Knitting at Large friends, which is always a delight.

To join, just visit the CustomFit Knitting at Large KAL thread. I look forward to making my first CustomFit pattern right along with you.


  1. The software seems like it would be hugely helpful for all knitters, but especially knitters with less experience with fitted garments. I wish I could join the KAL, but I'm in the throes of completing my husband's sweater before it gets really cold here in Texas.
