(Know how it works? Log into CustomFit now!)


CustomFit makes custom sweater patterns based on your choice of gauge and body measurements. You can make patterns for our collections of great, basic sweaters; one of our many designs, or create your own with our Build Your Own sweater wizard.



CustomFit makes seamed, set-in sleeve sweater patterns for men, women, and kids. You choose the gauge, which means that any of the patterns can be made in any yarn that you like.

There are two sweater shapes:

  • Straight shaped designs have no waist shaping; the circumference at the hips is equal to the chest. These require a very simple set of body measurements.
  • Hourglass shaped designs include customized waist and bust shaping for your body. These require an expanded set of body measurements.

Designs are marked with their shape.


CustomFit will make all decisions about ease if you’d like. Choose “close,” “average,” “relaxed,” or “oversized,” and we’ll do the rest! If you prefer, you can also customize the measurements of your sweater before creating your pattern.

You can create measurement sets by tweaking CYCA standards, or you can measure from scratch with the help of our handy videos or by visiting one of our fantastic CustomFit LYS partners.


Create an account for free! You can store up to 10 sets of body measurements, and as many gauges as you like. Each pattern then costs between $10 – $12.50, depending on the complexity of the design.

We also offer two subscription levels for knitters who make a lot of sweaters! Maker costs $5 per month, and you receive 8 pattern credits per year. Maker Plus costs $8 per month, and subscribers get unlimited pattern creation – which means you can change your mind about what sweater you’re knitting as often as you like!

Once you create your pattern, it will be in your account forever and you can download it as a PDF as many times as you like.
