THE GARMENT HACK
I purchased a sweater (Teal Green Sweater in photo) and I love the shape of it. It really suits me. I decided to copy the shape using Designaknit.
I first opened Standard Garment shaping and using Zero ease transferred all measurements into Designaknit and then saved shape file.
I then moved into Original (Remember no hem allowance) I first added points to the front to denote the yoke shape and separated this from the front of garment. I then measured the garment across the bottom and went to piece (New) and made a hem shape piece.
Next I added the curves to the edges of front/back pieces using the curve tool.
I then added points to the centres of Front/Back pieces, separated them to create 4 pieces.
I added an extra st at centres of these 4 pieces to allow for joining/stitching seam.
Holding position used to shape front at top of piece.and stitch. Take off onto waste yarn. Knit other front/back as previous and stitch centre seams together using mattress stitch from wrong side of garment.. Next pick up held sts from both fronts doubling sts each side of centre. Start lace pattern (A stitchworld pattern was used) using reverse Holding position to shape yoke and knit to end placing shoulder and neck stitches onto waste yarn. Knit sleeves. Then join one shoulder. Knit neckband after assessing no of sts needed. I reduced held sts before knitting neckband. Join other shoulder and finish knitting garment together.
Garment pieces were steam pressed. T6 used throughout except for 1 by 1 ribbing T 2/2
Yarn used was Bramwells Artistic in Red.
