The focus for the #KnitPetiteProject in September is creating your own FOs.
One of the tools we can use to help us all along is the KAL happening right now in the #KnitPetiteProject Ravelry group. This is free to join, and is a KAL that you can work at your own pace. Folks are there to hang out, share experiences, ask questions, and offer advice. Join us!
For my own KAL project, I announced last week that I’ll be creating the first #KPP prototype petite sweater.
This sweater will be:
- created using petite sizing charts and a specially formulated grade rule for petites from a 28″ – 60″ bust
- a top down yoked sweater, which was identified in the numerous #KPP surveys as a sweater type many petites found ill-fitting and challenging to modify
- designed to offer the knitter choice: you will have two ready-designed yokes to choose from, and one blank chart to create-you-own design!
- test knit (beginning in January 2018) to ensure my newly-developed petite grade rule is working!
You can follow the progress of this sweater here on the website as well as in the KAL on Ravelry.
If you’re interested in testing this prototype, it will be ready by January 2018. Want to keep updated on testing? Just join the Canary Knits newsletter (once-a-month email).
My goal with this #KPP prototype sweater is to ensure that the grade rule I have is accurate; I want to provide petite knitters with patterns that bring vertical measurements in closer to actual petite measurements, and offer OPTIONS for our community!
Since you’ve become a part of the #KPP community, is there any new knowledge you can apply to your future projects to make them conform to your fit desires?
