Sweater Help Knit Along

Knitting your first sweater? Or designing the sweater of your dreams? This is the place for questions, support, and showing off your sweaters!

Check out Nina's Learn to Knit a Sweater class, and learn to create a customized raglan sweater to fit your measurements and with any type of neckline, hem, or detailing you'd like.

Here is Nina's first video, and you can find the rest on our tutorials page here:
The New to Knitting eBook also includes Nina's detailed Design Your Own Sweater pattern.

We also offer many books with simple sweaters and advice for making a well fitting sweater. Here are some books that we recommend:
Custom Knits
Modern Top-Down Knitting
Knitting Without Tears
Knits Men Want
The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns
Knit Fix
The Knitter's Book of Finishing Techniques
