Hannah Fettig's extremely popular Featherweight Cardigan is now available via CustomFit!
Featherweight is an easy and versatile knit, making it a great first sweater for beginner knitters. The CustomFit version of Featherweight is a set-in sleeve, pieced garment that can be made with a variety of sleeve and hem lengths. Each CustomFit Featherweight pattern has been crafted especially for your body, using your own gauge numbers - so not only can chose your sweater's body and sleeve lengths, you can work it in any gauge you like, too!
To achieve the lighter-than-air style of the sweater shown, use any lace-weight or fingering yarn. The original Featherweight was knit using lace weight yarn knit at 6 sts per inch / 24 sts per 10cm. Also, the original sweater is worked with a 3/4 sleeve length and a high hip length, but both of those options can be customized to suit you!CustomFit patterns are perfect for Wannietta. She is an amazing knitter. You'd think that she makes her garments on a knitting machine. One small problem. Sometimes Wannietta has a hard time achieving the tension that the pattern asks for. This way we are writing a pattern to her tension. Now she doesn't have to swatch and swatch and swatch. One swatch and if we like the fabric she can start knitting.
You can purchase the original Featherweight Cardigan pattern on Ravelry...
