How to choose a sweater pattern

Spring and magic is in the air in London this week! I’m planning my self indulgent sweater for Squam and starting a knit along to chat about it.

What’s in the WIP?

This week I’m talking about deciding on my self indulgent sweater for Squam. You can have a look at the main contenders on my Sweater Pinterest board.

Some past sweater efforts

Moonlight by Kim Hargreaves and my Moonlight project page (Rav link)

Dusk by Kim Hargreaves and my Dusk project page (Rav link)

Central Park Hoodie by Heather Lodinsky and my CPH project page (Rav link)

Buttony Sweater by Katie Marcus (I just saw Katie has a fab sewing blog too ) and my Buttony project

I’ve decided to knit Aislinn by Amy Herzog.

I talk about Amy’s excellent Knit to Flatter book and her Knit to Flatter Craftsy course:

UK Amazon link:  Knit to Flatter

US Amazon link: Knit to Flatter

Amy’s Knit to Flatter course on Craftsy is great and is currently on sale at 35% off!!

  1. Hi Helen:
    Love the podcast. I happened to pick you up at the very beginning.
    You may be really surprised when you take the photo and look at it as Amy recommends, even if you have already done the class and looked through the book. The comparison is more between your shoulders and your hips rather than your bust and your hips. When I took the class, I would say half the people thought they were bottom heavy and and least half of those ended up being proportional.
