Today is the final day of the CustomFit Trunk Show’s stay at Yarn Folk. I will miss these sweaters! Here’s a look at the last one made by another shop.
Sunni: I’m Sunni Scrivner from Yarn in Eureka. Our shop introduced CustomFit sometime in 2014. The sweater that we contributed was knit by my employee – April Lane.
YF: How did you choose the sweater you contributed? How about the yarn?
SS: April wanted to knit one of the classic options. She wanted to make a simple pullover that could be worn every day. She likes cotton yarn and the Maya from Berroco is a great option because the chain construction makes it lightweight. She wanted it to be simple but not too plain, so the medallion on the back was a fun way to keep it interesting.
SS: We love CustomFit at Yarn because we have a lot of newer knitters who are just venturing into making sweaters for themselves. The combination of being able to choose any gauge, have a pattern created to their specific measurements and then select the fit works really well for these knitters.
YF: How many CustomFit sweaters have you knit? Do you have a favorite?
SS: We’ve knit three CustomFit sweaters in the shop and we have more than half a dozen customers working on their own CustomFit sweaters right now. We’ve almost all chosen one of the classic options because customers can add little details of their own to personalize them while ending up with a perfect basic wardrobe piece.
