CustomFit has many different design choices.
I chose to use the custom sweater wizard. First I knit two generous swatches with my yarn, Malabrigo Rios (Worsted: 100% Merino, 210 yards). When I say generous, I mean 40 stitches and 40 rows. Since my yarn was a superwash, I washed by swatch and let it dry. Then I decided with swatch was the fabric (feel/look) I wanted for my sweater.
My design choices were: Cardigan, mid-hip length, long sleeves, deep v-neck, 2″ twisted k1, p1 ribbing, and average fit. There are 3 fit categories to choose from: close, average, relaxed. We plugged my measurements, swatch details, and design choices and out came a terrific pattern. The directions were completely clear.
I’m no fan of finishing a sweater. However, this sweater was a breeze to finish. Since the number of rows to knit were exactly the same in each piece, there was no cajoling it into submission to make it line up.
I am thrilled with how my sweater fits. You know how everyone has their own personal fit issue? Mine is narrow shoulders and a biggish bust. If I fit the shoulders, the bust is tight. If I fit the bust, I get shoulder wings. The shoulder on this sweater fits me better than commercial clothing!
I’ve actually cast on for my next CustomFit sweater.
