IWK Winter 2007 Henley Perfected

Gallery: The Henley Perfected, design by Connie Chang Chinchio

Once again, Bertha and the Interweave gang all try on the same sweater for the greater good of knitting, to demonstrate how the sweater looks with various amounts of ease, both positive and negative.

Interweave Knits Winter 07As you can see, the same sweater looks very different on different women! We give general suggestions for customization for your inspiration. Only you can choose how you want your sweaters to fit and which customizations will work best for you and your beautiful self!

Sample garment shown measures 35" (89 cm).


Her bust: 34" (86.5 cm)
Ease as shown: 1" (2.5 cm) positive ease

Notice that Bertha and Stefanie (below) both have the same bust measurements, but they are shaped very differently! Debbie, also below, is only .5" bigger than either Bertha or Stefanie, and notice the difference in fit of the Henley across the three "girls".
