There. I said it. Size matters.
How many times have you finished a knitted project only to discover it is too big ...or too loose ...or too tight ...or too short?! It happens more than we'd like to admit.
This month, instead of a pattern release I've put out some charts to help with determining size. You'll find the charts on the "Tools" page on the website. You'll find measurements for finished blanket sizes and a chart for making sure the hat you are knitting will really fit the person you are making it for.
But the most useful chart (in my opinion) is the foot size chart. It provides average foot lengths for children up to adult men. If you're still unsure on slipper size measure the foot:
1) place a piece of paper on the floor against a wall.
2) stand on the paper, with the heel against the wall.
3) mark the longest point of the foot.
Your finished slipper or sock should be at 1/2"-3/4" shorter than the length you measure. This will insure a snug fit, because slippers stretch when you wear them.
I hope the charts are useful and will help you complete perfectly sized projects.
Have fun playing with sticks and string!
