SweaterMaker Screen Shots

What do the screens on SweaterMaker look like? Here are some of the pages you will see when you design any of the seven body styles that SweaterMaker gives you automatically. (We would have shown you more pages, but the page would take forever to load!)

The Garment Information Pane

Also known as SweaterMaker's driver's seat.

How does it work? You fill out all the fields for each sweater. SweaterMaker automatically recalculates the sweater settings with every change.

See the Dolman sweater below for the results of the settings on this page.


Body Style 1: the Set-in Sleeve

This is theof a set-in sleeve sweater.

SweaterMaker gives you three ways to change a measurement. Two of the ways are on any of the SweaterMaker drawing screens.

  1. You can "grab" each of the red boxes with your mouse, drag the box to a new location, and drop it.
  2. You can click inside any of the measurements boxes, and type the new value in.

SweaterMaker automatically adjusts all instructions and shaping to fit the new measurement.

The third way to change a measurement is on the Measurements Pane, at the bottom of this page.


Body Style 2: the Dropped Shoulder

Dropped shoulder sweaters are casual, comfortable, and require very little shaping. The wider the shoulders, the more the shoulder will drape down the arm.


Body Style 3: Raglan

Need a lot of shoulder room? Knit a raglan! Raglan sweaters provide terrific freedom of movement for arms, which is why they are often chosen for baseball shirts (all that throwing the ball, you know).

At left is the sleeve of a raglan sweater.


Body Style 4: Saddle Shoulder

A saddle shoulder has a small band of fabric across the shoulders, from the arm to the neck. SweaterMaker has you knit this band first, and then you will knit the sleeve from the shoulder down to the wrist.


Body Style 5: Horizontal Dolman

A view of a sideways-knit Dolman sweater. You will knit this puppy in one large piece, and only have to add the neck, waist, and wrist trim later. It's a wonderful way to knit a sweater with vertical stripes!


Body Style 6: Vertical Dolman

This is the vertical Dolman front. Notice the extra-deep armholes. By grabbing the boxes at the base of the front neck, you can make that neckline as deep as you like!


Body Style 7: Round Yoke

When you knit a round yoke sweater, this is what the yoke will look like. Or rather, half the yoke. You will knit two of these, and then sew them up later.


The Measurements Pane

The Measurements Pane gives you a quick one-page reference containing all the dimensions of your sweater. If you know what you want to do to change the measurements, you can do it on the appropriate drawing (Front, Back, etc), or you can make the change here.

Some measurements are grayed because they cannot be altered for the current sweater settings. For example, if you have a V-neck, you don't need to change the Placket Depth.
