Amy talks about how she began with a series of online tutorials that she called Fit to Flatter which became a wonderful class and is now a fantastic book! Knit to Flatter teaches you how to understand that the shape of your body, and not so much your numerical measurements, has a bigger impact on what garments look best on you and how to choose the right shapes to enhance your best features.
The Stoker pattern from Knit to Flatter, featuring Valley Yarns Stockbridge.
She also reminds us that it’s OK to use a pattern you really like as a starting point, altering it to fit your shape and that yarn choice make a big difference in the final garment.
Please join us on June 6th to meet Amy, celebrate the release of the book and get your own copy signed!
