a note from the creator
To my beloved knitting community,
This one's for you. I've knitted for 20 years, many of those years, unsuccessfully. I've knitted my way through all of the types of failure. For me, I faced the typical issues new knitters face: tension gauging, choosing needles, fit and material selection. Additionally, I was sick of going on forums to troubleshoot errors I found in printed patterns, ripping out my hair, etc. I decided to make a knitwear pattern generator that would allow anyone to create garments with any tension, and any body type successfully. Here it is, my first demonstration of the technology. It's a simple comfy tee I made Nina. She loves it. You will too when you make your own. Don't be a stranger, feel free to email me with feature requests and feedback. Help me make this the best it can be. Thanks for your support,
