Standard Garment Styling

Get off to a flying start by choosing one of the program's built in garment patterns and setting the knitting tension to match your chosen yarn and machine, then:
~ select a garment type and add details of the wearer: specify adult, child or baby, male or female, and then choose from the range of standard sizes offered
~ modify the garment by opting for one of three different kinds of fit - classic, casual or oversize - and see the effect on a body block, or choose no ease at all
~ decide what kind of sleeves you would like: raglan, set-in, drop-shoulder or saddle; then select the type of front and back neckline required and the program will work out the garment pattern for you
~ alter styling details such as rib or welt depth, overlap on cardigans and jackets; change the width and depth of the neckline; turn an ordinary set-in sleeve into a puffed sleeve; change the length of the cuffs, and so on
~ for skirts, choose the number of panels and make them symmetric or asymmetric and alter the curve of the hemline
If you want more control over the design, you can use measurements you have entered yourself - there is even a database where you can store all your friends' and family's and customers' measurement data, ready to be accessed and used any time you want them.

You can alter and adjust body measurements individually and you can modify the ease on each one: there are a whole host of features to help you to produce the perfect garment.
