custom patterns




  How it works:

  • Find a picture or sketch a design you would like to knit. You can also send an actual sweater you would like to replace or reproduce. Or choose a design from our  Exclusive Designs on this web-site that you would like written in a different size or in a different gauge.

  • Knit a gauge in the yarn you will be using and in the pattern stitch you want. Send a written copy of the pattern stitch. The tension should be appropriate for the garment you are making. If you are not sure which gauge will work best,¬†work a few gauges on different size needles and clearly tag each gauge with the size needle you used for each.

     If you feel confident in taking your own gauge, do so and let us know the gauge (stitch gauge and row gauge) and the pattern stitch you will be using.

  • Mail your gauge, design (picture, sketch, sweater style from our web site, or actual sample), pattern stitch and completed print out of measurement chart. All material will be returned to you.
