How to Get Started
I always recommend people start by deciding what yarn they want to use. Explore your stash or your local yarn shop, find something you'll adore working with, and swatch it until you've got a great fabric. (Click here for a quick video on what makes for a good sweater fabric.) Measure gauge precisely, and save it in your CustomFit account (make sure to write down the needles you used!)
Then, daydream about sweaters! Take a gander at the many designs built right into CustomFit, and decide on the combination of silhouette and detailing that makes you happy. Unless it's cabled, any design in the site can be made with any yarn you'd like - whether or not your yarn matches the gauge I used.
Finally, if you don't already have them, it's a good idea to get a basic set of body measurements. Check out my YouTube videos on measuring by clicking here. (And don't worry - if you don't have a friend handy, you can take all circumferences yourself, and measure lengths on a store-bought sweater whose lengths work for you.)
Once you have a design picked out, a gauge saved, and a simple set of body measurements, you're ready to go. Click on the design and get started!
