Welcome to Deb Gemmell Mods: Knitting Modifications for sizing and creativity. Do you sometimes have trouble getting your knitting projects to work out? Me, too. You are not alone.
I am a knitter who cannot count on getting gauge with the recommended needle on the ball band. In fact, with sweater yarn, almost never. I am shorter than the average bear so have been adapting patterns for length for several decades. I am no longer the small person I was when younger so now adapt for wider hips, bigger bust and general roundness.
I hope all the information I have gathered by knitting for myself and teaching others, will help you become a knitter who can make the necessary modifications for your projects to work out to the proper size.
I also invite you to be more creative and adapt patterns adding special features to your knitting, making it uniquely your own.
