Each winter when the weather starts to get really cold, I tend to switch out my sewing for knitting.  There is nothing better than curling up in front of the tv on a cold winters night with my knitting.  I am fully aware though that working 5 days a week, my wardrobe does not need too many handknits so I try to limit my jerseys to one new one each winter.

I am a big fan of Amy Herzog and her custom fit variations.  A couple of years ago I plugged my measurements into her website and out came a custom fitted double knit sweater designed exactly to my measurements.  It has back and front darts and as long as I keep the tension and weight of the wool the same, I will end up with the same size results each time.  All I need to vary is the stitch it is made up in.

My latest version is called is called Options and is actually a really simple stitch.  I tend to leave out the front shaping on my most recent versions because being sway backed I find that only the back shaping is really essential…
