KnitsThatFit Sweaters

KnitsThatFit Sweaters

Jacqueline Raffo

KnitsThatFit Sweaters creates custom knitting patterns for Pullovers and Cardigans for any yarn, any size and any fit, and is used by both hand and machine knitters.
Patterns for a wide range of styles can be created with a choice of raglan, set-in sleeves or drop shoulder armholes, and a range of necklines and sleeve options (including sleeveless). There are also options for waist shaping with close fitting garments.
With an extensive range of standard clothing sizes for Women (International), Men, Babies and Children, all body measurements can be adjusted for a customised fit. The garment measurements such as length, neck width and depth, sleeve length are also fully adjustable. There is a selection of stitch patterns that can be chosen, but any stitch pattern can be used, and if the stitch pattern has a pattern repeat or a central panel, the app will give instructions to centre the pattern or adjust the stitch count for the pattern repeat, according to your choices.

So whether you want a knitting pattern for an ankle length oversized pullover with a roll-neck in a super chunky yarn, or a short sleeved cropped V-neck cardigan in a fancy fine yarn, or a crew neck pullover for the little ones, this app will give you a pattern for all of them!

The knitting patterns are currently produced in the form of written text, with options for knitting the garment in the round from the top down, or flat, from the bottom up. The pattern is also shown diagrammatically in the form of a schematic diagram.

There is a choice to use DK / Light Worsted or Aran / Worsted weight yarn. A small amount of adjustment to body and sleeve length can be made. The instructions are given in the form of text, for knitting the garment flat, from the bottom up.
All of the features of the paid version of KnitsThatFit Sweaters can be unlocked with an in-app purchase.

With the in-app purchase, you can also create and save as many patterns as you like, and they will all be accessible from a list within the app.

Knitting Calculator

Knitting Calculator

Tone Aurora

The knitting calculator computes how to increase and decrease stitches evenly. The app is responsive, simple and intuitive, and also contains a list of abbreviations and a counter.

Tip # 1:
Use the app to figure out where to make buttonholes by entering the number of stitches and the number of buttonholes to the decrease module of the calculator. Create the buttonhole when asked to "k2tog".

Tip # 2:
Use the app to figure out how to pick up stitches to make the placket even by counting the number of stitches per inch, subtract the number of stitches the pattern says it should be every inch, using the decrease module of the calculator to find where to skip a stitch when stitches are picked up "k2tog".

Knitamus

Knitamus

What There's Time For LLC

Maybe you're the kind of knitter that always has things in order. You'd love nothing better than to set up each row of a pattern before you even cast on. Or maybe you're the type that dives in with abandon... but would love a lifeline to easily get started again, no matter how long that shawl or hat or intricate baby sweater has been lost in the bottom of your bag.

Either way or somewhere in between, Knitamus is designed for you.

Each Knitamus project can have as many pieces as you need (for sleeves, front, and back, for instance). And each piece has a single counter so you always know which row you're on. Easily display as many PDF pages or chart photos as you need in the special chart window with an adjustable highlight bar that remembers each row. You can quickly page through to set the highlight for every row before you even start, including repeating highlights, or you can just get started and each row will be remembered as you go in case you knit it again. Easily add notes, repeating or not, to any row at any time.

iCloud sync allows you to work on your iPhone when you're out and about, or enjoy the larger space of your iPad when it's available.

The Ravelry connection keeps your photos and project status up-to-date automatically.

The Apple Watch app will display notes and repeat information for current projects found in your iCloud account, or you can use it as a simple counter without iCloud.

I hope you enjoy Knitamus! Please share the love by leaving a review on the App Store and contact me by email with any questions or concerns.

Happy knitting!
