A look at some of the Abbeyhill sweaters made by our wonderful preview knitters who chose to use Tukuwool Sock yarn. They've kindly shared their size choices to help others match sizing information with how the design looks on a real body.
How to knit the sleeves on Glenmore, and, if necessary, adjust them to fit your body perfectly. Did you see that the pattern includes a spreadsheet you can use to easily alter the sleeves without doing any maths.
In my last post I showed you how to cast on at the underarm and join the body of Glenmore in the round. The actual knitting of the body should be nice and relaxing, without anything complicated, but you might be undecided about how long to make it.
Take a look at the finished Glenmore's from our Preview Knitters. Preview knitting allows you to see the sweater on a wider range of bodies than the modelled shots and see what the knitters said about their sweaters.
I wasn’t going to put the time, money, and effort into a garment that I wasn’t sure was going to fit the way I needed it and have it sit in my drawer unloved. I knew my body was the body I would continue to have, because, even though I’m non-binary trans, I’m not going to medically transition. I had to learn what would make a garment silhouette work for me and help give me the shape I wanted without having many models that were representative of me, either in body shape or gender presentation.
