Adapting basic patterns for personal preferences and measurements is the focus of this webpage,
that helps refashion my knitting or crochet schematics.
The schematics are basic patterns and easily to adjust in your own fitted pattern.
I have made different styles, so that any knitter or crocheter can customize sweater and cardigan patterns
into unique creations.
With these basic designs I hope to inspire knitters and crocheters at all levels.
You are free to change proportions, neckline styles, sleeve length, and color
you can add collars and edgings, this way you can alter the patterns to meet your needs.
Basic women's clothes patterns, SCHEMATIC dimensions are in cms
You can use these basic schematic patterns for a reference also, for all my patterns

So what can you do with these basic patterns ?
Well sometimes you have a pattern without any measurements or gauge at all,
then you have to knit or crochet your tension swatch, gauge and follow the measurements in cms.

Most crocheters already know that crocheting with plant-based fibers, like cotton, linen, or rayon, is the best way
to make crochet cruelty-free. However, only with experience comes the knowledge of how these fibers behave.
I prefer a combination of 50% cotton and 50% acrylic for winter and 100% cotton for summer items.
Yarns for the summer
Viscose or rayon yarn. Rayon fiber is quite absorbent, dyes very well, is soft, and has a nice drape. Although it may
shrink, it does not melt at high temperatures, and it is resistant to moths, bleach, and many common household
chemicals. Rayon thread is divisible, shiny, and good for blending, but is not hard wearing.
Cotton: is not always an earth-friendly fiber. Organic cotton is generally understood as cotton, from non genetically
modified plants, that is certified to be grown without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers
Cotton is inelastic, heavy, absorbent, non-insulating, and takes dye well. It has a tendency to stretch, although it
may also shrink when washed and/or dried. It is usually machine washable.
Linen: is a natural cellulose fiber obtained from the flax plant. Its natural color is ecru or tan and due to its wax
content. Linen can be woven in various weight, it does have a tendency to crease.
Hemp: is very strong and has high cellulose content (about 90%.) The fibers are evenly dispersed within the yarn,
and its moisture content is relatively low. It’s an excellent “green,” earth-friendly fiber.
Ramie: is very strong, resistant to mold and bacteria, lustrous, and it holds its shape very well. However, ramie is
also stiff, is not terribly elastic, and is sometimes difficult to work with because it can be very brittle. In addition,
ramie does not take dye very well. It is often produced in blends rather than using it plain.
Bamboo: is softer than cotton and has a natural sheen. It naturally degrades in soil, and is pollution-free to the
environment after decomposing, it is a natural, green and environmental friendly type of textile. Purely, or blend with
materials like cotton, hemp, silk, natural silk. Bamboo has a nice drape, feels cool and soft, and has unique and
natural antibiotic qualities. It is odor resistant and ultraviolet resistant.
