This is THE best instructional video on fitting I have ever seen!! Review by Linda

I have taken a lot of courses on fitting, both when it comes to knitting, sewing and crocheting. This is THE BEST, it is clear and concise and from here on in I am using these measuring techniques for any garment I will make in the future...

It also entails a great discussion on ease, fibers, ets... It's just a MUST HAVE!!

Worth every cent Review by Zoraida Vaher

I took a Knit to Fit class with Barry Klein and it changed the way I look at patterns and what I choose for myself. It's well worth "coming out of your comfort zone" as he says and trying new styles you thought might not work for you. Also, you will finally understand how to properly measure yourself and look great. Laura is brilliant with color and her expertise helps you see things in a new way. It's great to have these DVDs available for reference at any time as well as a nice compliment to their book "A Knitter's Template".
