You have an idea of a
sweater you've always wanted - but how do you
get started? Whether you have need a
very long v-neck navy wool sweater with leather
buttons, a burnt orange sweater
with tiny bright red polka dots, a dramatic
calf-length black sweater coat with extra-long,
flared sleeves, or
maybe a classic
Letter Sweater in your school colors
from your days at Vassar, Swarthmore or Tufts -
it is you want, your new sweater is here and
waiting for you - all you have to do is order
Now that you are
ready to have a custom knitted sweater designed -
how do you proceed?
What's the first step?
There are couple of different ways to go:
1. If you see a sweater in the section
Favorite Styles and it's exactly what
you are looking for, you can order it directly
from the webpage.
If you would like to
make a change or two, for
instance change the neckline from a crewneck to
a v-neck or rolled neck, or put stripes on
both sleeves rather than just on one sleeve, that's easy to do - please just
ask me in the "Comments" section of the order form
as you place your order.
2. If you are starting from an idea
of your own, whether it's something you've
always wanted, a re-creation of an old favorite
or a sweater just like a photo you have seen,
send me an email and ask me about your request.
Here are some common questions:
"I want to copy my old sweater. Here's a
photo - can you knit this for me?"
"My father has had his college letter for
years, but not the school sweater. Can you
knit a sweater in his school colors? I
want to surprise him on his birthday."
"I can't find a beige three quarter sleeve
jewelneck cardigan with a single button at the
top to wear over my new dress. Can you
make one for me in time for a wedding?"
"My daughter is on her school's basketball
team, and I want to have a unique team sweater
that no one else has, to wear to her games.
Can you design this for me?"
"I am 6'5" tall and nothing I buy is long
enough. Can you knit some sweater vests
for me that will really fit?"
A wide range of sizes are available
for your hand knitted sweater. Compare
the sizes and measurements on the size chart,
and select the size which fits you best, or we
can make a few adjustments to create your own custom
You may want to look at
Design Your Own Sweater for
additional ideas for the sweater. This is where you will find
sleeve styles, etc.
yarn colors are also available.
Having trouble deciding what you want?
Try this: take a
piece of paper and a pen, and write down all of
the details you want in your design, starting
with the length, the sleeve length and neckline
style choices, buttondown (cardigan) or
pullover, etc. Then
email me and let me know
what kind of sweater you want.
Estimates are free, with no obligation.
In your email,
describe the sweater, and I will let you know
how much it will cost, usually within 24 hours.
Don’t worry about getting every last detail
right; this is just an estimate, We can continue to email back
and forth until we get the details just right.
If you have a photo or sketch, please attach it
to the email.
people prefer a real conversation with a live
person, rather than an email. Give me a
call at 1-888-797-1088, and tell me about your custom design, and I
will tell you how much it will cost. While
I don't always answer the phone (especially if I
am busy knitting), I always listen to each voice
mail message. I will contact you and we
can set up a time for our phone call.
