CustomFit at Espace Tricot!

Are you reluctant to knit sweaters because you’re just not convinced your finished garment is going to fit you properly? Or perhaps you’ve tried your hand at cardigans and pullovers only to be disappointed by the way it looks on you?  Too long, too short, too big, too tight (in all the wrong places), just not what you were expecting? If so, we’re happy to introduce you to a new in-store service that will surely make you fall in love with sweater knitting again (or for the first time!).  CustomFit is a custom sweater pattern generator from well known knitwear designer Amy Herzog that takes your choices, your body, and your specific hand-knit gauge and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you, so you get to make all the fun choices (“I want a long-sleeved scoop neck!”), without worrying about the hard ones (“How much ease do I need in my waist?”).  With CustomFit we can build you a pattern that fits beautifully – from hem to neck, and everywhere in between.


It works like this: we carefully take your measurements, you knit a swatch and choose your sweater elements (style, neckline, sleeve style, edgings, etc.). We put that information into our special LYS CustomFit account and create a pattern that is perfect for you. Your measurements are saved forever, so your second sweater is even easier!

Several of us have now used CustomFit to create our own sweaters and have been thrilled with the results. We really can’t recommend this approach enough!

To spread the sweater love, we are now offering three levels of CustomFit service in store:
