Additional Information

Take charge of the fit and details of your crocheted garments, with guidance from needle art designer Margaret Hubert!

Designers have to create crochet patterns in standard sizes, but very few people's bodies actually match up to those "average" measurements. Customize Your Crochet teaches crocheters how to adjust standard size patterns to fit their unique measurements.

The techniques and processes taught in this book are the same ones that designer Margaret Hubert has used for years to teach classes on custom fitting. With this book, individual crocheters can learn to adjust patterns to fit themselves and the others for whom they crochet.

But Customize Your Crochet goes beyond a basic, good fit to help the crocheter create a truly custom garment. Maybe you'd like that neckline a little higher, or you'd like a little flare to the sleeves. With this book, you can add individual details and give your crocheted creations personal style.

Diagrams and illustrations are used throughout to explain body shapes and make comparing measurements simple. Step-by-step photography shows the details for garment construction, specific increases, decreases and other shaping methods, as well as finishing techniques and embellishments.

Jump in and be confident that your next project will match your shape and style to perfection!

I'm disappointed in this book. I hoped there would be more tips and instructions for customizing any crochet pattern to fit but instead all the fitting information is based on four sweater designs and unfortunately is not very in-depth. I was hoping for more detailed information and step by step directions for customizing fit that would be able to be applied more broadly to other crochet garment patterns, this book doesn’t provide it.
Unlike knitting, there is very little available on how to alter and customize crocheted garments. Two books that do a much better job are:
Couture Crochet Workshop The information about fitting and shaping is invaluable. The technical material is presented well and is essential for anyone who wants to customize their pattern.

I'm disappointed in this book.I thought that there would be more tips and instructions for customizing ANY crochet pattern to fit but instead all of the fitting information is based on four sweater designs that I would never make or wear.I was hoping for more good nuts and bolts information that I would be able to apply more broadly to other crochet garment patterns.
Creating crochet garments that fit is a challenge. Especially if you don't know much about garment construction to begin with!
Margaret's new book offers instructions in a very clear and easy to understand manner. Beginning with identifying body type the book helps us to understand what modifications need to be made in order to create a flattering item.

The area where it excels, is in teaching us how to make the modifications and apply that information to any pattern. The book does contain 4 cardigan patterns and shows how to customize for each body type. So you can start by following one of these and then move onto customizing patterns from your favorite book, blog or designer.

The "Finish Like a Pro" section offers great information on giving your work the polish that it deserves. I especially like the hints on fixing mistakes and working with zippers.

This is definitely a good addition to the library of anyone interested in making... Read more
