Create knitting patterns for hand or machine! Make sweaters for the whole family & any yarn! Customise measurements and style! Knit in the round or flat.

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.

Without the in-app purchase, this version of the KnitsThatFit Sweater app enables you to create a knitting pattern for a standard-fit, crew-neck sweater in a choice of 3 adult sizes. 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.

Patterns can be printed (with an AirPrint compatible printer) and saved as a PDF, which can be opened in any other compatible apps on your device.

Absolutely 🥰 this app

I have been using this app for about 7 years and I love it. I’m a machine knitters and find the pattern charting superb. I take this program with me everywhere I go. When inspiration finds me I can make note of my ideas and work them out later. I love the note field I can note punchcard number and note other design elements I want to add as I knit The directions are easy to follow and the schematic is great. The customization of garment shape lets me knit a peplum top or a hooded cardigan. I added a slant pocket and it worked out great. Developer is responsive and friendly whenever I’ve had to talk with her. I frequently recommend the app to other knitters via Facebook. So much power in the palm of my hand. Thank you Jacqueline.

This is amazing!

I’ve had an idea for a sweater in my head, but couldn’t find a pattern that matched it. With this app, I can create exactly what I want, and make sure it fits me perfectly! I’ve done the math to adjust patterns to fit before, and this is sooo much easier!
Also, I really appreciate being able to get the app and poke around before I purchased it. I’ve been disappointed by apps before, so being able to see all of the options available got me really excited for all the possibilities! Thank you!

Amazing App for Custom Sweaters

I have been trying to create my own sweater knitting patterns and was using formulas, books, spreadsheets etc. until I found this app, which magically creates a pattern with so much flexibility. The application designer was very (!!) responsive to my questions. I highly recommend this app, it’s amazing and has so many features!
