Recalibrate is a reversible modular fingering weight top knit at a loose gauge. 9 finished bust circumferences are provided, each with 2 length options (hip length or full length, 4” (10 cm) longer). There are a total of 18 sizes.

This pattern is beginner friendly, and great for using up leftover bits of fingering weight yarn. Testers have been knocking it out of the park with amazing color combinations and striping patterns. They have mixed different fiber contents throughout their pieces, and recommend experimenting with swatching to see how different fiber content behaves together. Some test knitters found they preferred to use softer fibers for sections in direct contact with their skin, such as the underarm panels and sleeve cuffs.

Pattern includes directions for how to adjust dimensions to make a perfect fit. I include photo tutorials of techniques as well as video explanations of style and fit. The pattern includes a full schematic and a blank coloring page. (NOTE: the schematic shown here in the pattern listing is a simplified version to give you a sense of the overall dimensions. Each component is spelled out for each size in the final pattern.)

This size inclusive pattern has been professionally tech edited and every single size has been test knit! 

Excerpt from the pattern page:

RECALIBRATE is a loosely knit garter stitch shirt designed with a casual fit. It uses fingering weight yarn and a modular join-as-you-go technique. This knit can handle personal adjustments to suit the wearer’s needs. It is designed in a way to allow the maker to fit in those little tweaks that truly personalize a piece. So far I’ve made 5 in the design process, each time making those subtle adjustments to allow the garment to really develop its own personality. I can’t wait to see how you RECALIBRATE this piece to make it your own.
