How to Size Handmade Clothes

One of my greatest pet peeves as a crocheter are “one size fits most” patterns and patterns customized for the designer’s own body.  I prefer patterns that everyone can wear no matter what their size, shape, age, or gender.  It isn’t always practical to create a pattern that fits men, women, and children, but the pattern should work for all women or all men!

When I am designing clothing, I continually return to these standards to calculate standard sizing.

For Knitting and Crochet, you can’t beat the Craft Yarn Council.
