When it comes to knitting garments, it can be difficult to decide which size you should knit to actually fit your body.
The clothing size you wear is not usually the same as the size of knit garment you wear, and sometimes the measurements of a finished knit object don’t correspond to traditional garment sizes, either.
The good news is most knitting patterns give you a lot of information to help you decide which size will work best for you.
Amy Christoffers runs down the steps for choosing the right size in a great blog post over at the Berroco blog.
As long as you know your torso measurement (shown above) you should be able to find the correct size to knit. There’s a great tip in here about comparing the printed measurements and the schematic to find out the ease of a garment, so check it out!
