Custom Fit Knit Jackets
Casual to Couture
by Jean Frost
The recognized master of handknit jackets, reveals the secrets of fit, fabric and details. Custom Handknit Jackets is really three books in one: A tutorial on custom fitting the Master Jacket Pattern; a collection of 12 jacket silhouettes built on the Master Pattern in 10 standard sizes (or on the knitter's own Master Jacket Template) and 3 gauges; a portfolio of knit versions of the designer details that have made the Chanel Jacket a signature piece for over 50 years: the fabrics, collars, pockets, finishes, and hand-stitched silk lining. With the customized Master Pattern, Jean Frost demystifies fit: it is determined before a single stitch is knit. The process is easy to follow, using the simplest math and graph paper. Using real-body examples, Jean shows how to correct for narrow shoulders, long arms, short or long waist, large bust, and other common fitting problems.
