How to Make a Sweater Slimmer and More Fitted

How to Make a Sweater Slimmer and More Fitted

Don’t worry if your sweater turns out to be wider than you expected.

You can easily make it slimmer and more fitted when you follow seven relatively simple steps described in this tutorial.

If you’d rather learn from a video, click the video frame below to watch every step in a detailed video workshop.

This method works equally well for adjusting sweaters knitted by hand, and the ones produced at a factory.

If you also want to make your sweater (or the sleeves) shorter, use the steps described over here to remove the excess fabric, then add a border or simply bind off all open stitches.


The full step-by-step photo tutorial about this method, is a part of the Knitting Collection #7. Once you order your copy of this collection, you will instantly receive a “big PDF” (282 pages!) with this and 37 other tutorials included in the collection.

You will also receive three e-books and one knitting pattern as a special bonus, so go ahead and get it all right now before you forget 😊
