How do you size a knitting pattern?
Knitting patterns are usually sized by the finished chest or bust measurement, but sometimes the intended body measurement is given instead. In that case look to the schematic for the finished garment measurements.
How do you measure a sweater?
1. Measure the chest size
- Measure the chest size. Measure across the front of the jumper from one armpit seam to the other.
- Measure back length. Measure from the top of the back of the jumper in the center (just above where a brand label usually sits) to the bottom hem of the jumper.
- Measure arm length.

What is the length of a sweater?

How do you measure a raglan sweater?

How do you measure a buster for a sweater?
Bust. The bust is probably the measurement that is asked for the most with tops. You take the measurement across the chest of the garment, from side seam to sides seam. It goes across the garment directly under the armpits, where the side seam meets the sleeve.

How do you measure yarn when knitting?
Estimating How Much Yarn to Buy
- Number of skeins called for in the pattern × yards per skein = total yards needed for the pattern.
- Total yards needed for the pattern ÷ yards per skein of your chosen yarn = number of skeins you need (round up to the nearest whole number, if necessary)
How do you measure ribbing in knitting?
One good approach is to take a measurement with the ribbing completely relaxed (unstretched), then stretch it to its widest and take another measurement, and use the average of the two. The stitch gauge in this example is 15 stitches over four inches (remember the purl stitches of the rib pattern are hiding!).
Gently smooth out the garment but do not stretch or pull it. For an accurate measurement, place the ruler near center of the garment, not near the knitting needles or near the bottom edge. For example, if the project has a ribbed edge, you don’t want to measure near it.
