Hello friends! This is a super short post just to let you know that the migration of our blog to our shiny new website is taking a little longer than we hoped. While we work hard to get all our existing posts onto their new home, we will be continuing to post as usual with new content. We're so sorry for the delay!
Over the past six months, we have delved into a plethora of topics that all aim for the same goal; to create garments that fit and you will wear for years to come. While we are far from finished with this topic, I have come across so many interesting people and resources exploring this topic that I thought it would be handy to put together a resource list here on the blog so you can check them out also.
When it comes to the final fit and feel of a garment, there are lots of factors that come into play, but one that always seems a little elusive is drape. Drape can feel a little tricky to get your head around, but it's actually quite straightforward and we're going to break it down in this post. Getting to grips with what it means and, more importantly, what it means for your knitting, can help you reach the ultimate goal; a sweater you love!
Hello friends! It's Claire here and I'm back chatting once again about fit issues we get in our knitting. Today we're going to look at mixing and matching sizes in a knitting pattern. Why would we do that? Well, as you probably know, nearly all patterns are designed based on standard body sizes, but not many people fit perfectly into a standard body size. All our bodies are different, and just because one area of a pattern works for us, it doesn't mean the rest will.
So how do we find out if we need to mix and match? Let's take a look!
Hello lovelies, Hanna Lisa here! I'm so happy to be back on these pages with a little check for our knitting queue! Every once in a while we love taking stock of what's currently on (or recently off) our needles here at Making Stories, and when it turned out that we both had a couple of Issue 5 projects going, we thought this might make for a really nice special queue check post.
