The conti-something shoulder is unique and I’m delighted to be able to share it with you. I currently have four sweaters with this shoulder and they truly are the most comfortable garments I own. I would have more but my sister keeps taking them home with her.
This is not a traditional sweater technique so there are extra measurements in addition to the traditional ones. The goal here is a beautiful fit and that requires more than standard (S/M/L/XL) measurements.
Take your measurements with care. Good fit depends on a quality swatch for stitch and row counts and accurate measurements. The measuring points will be described more fully in the measurements section (next page). Here’s the overview.
- (not used as a point)
- Top of the shoulder where arm and shoulder meet.
- Top of torso/arm crease in front
- Top of torso/arm crease in back
These are the measurements you will be providing.
- Neck width
- Shoulder width
- Front width measure from/to start of arm/front crease
- Back width measure from/to start of arm/back crease
- Point of shoulder to start of arm/front crease
- Point of shoulder to start of arm/back crease
- Upper arm between top of armhole creases
- Depth of armhole
- Front width at base of armscye
- Back width at base of armscye
- Arm circumference just below armscye
