I want to say something controversial from the outset. Achieving good fit isn't that hard - you just need to follow these simple rules. I'll direct you back to my original post but the most important thing is that you choose a style you wear. James suits me and my daily uniform. I wear James with jeans and over tunics and over frocks and skirts and …. It's a true love kinda thing. This style is perfect for me.

Fits around the shoulders and boobs, skims over the midsection and has a lovely tapered arm. Measure yourself right and understand the shape and size of your body.

This is so very important - the wrong size can make what would be a wonderful sweater a bit bleurgh. Amy's methodology states the bust circumference is used an approximation for fit in patterns. Amy says that this is better measurement than a bust measurement as it takes into account your size without the give-or-take of boobs. Then after studying the schematic you would choose the size up from your upper torso measurement - she calls this your base size. Then you can make adjustments for your boobs if you need to. This is a bit of a revolution in thinking for me and such a sensible way to measure yourself.

I understood, as I mentioned in my post about the lovely Lila , that I really think the key to getting a good fit was having it fit well around your shoulders. And this is why James works so well for me. The shoulder fit is perfect as an off the rack pattern. But it is a rarity to have a pattern work so perfectly. Amy goes into a more detail in that podcast and in her book, but this simple change when taking your measurements will help you choose a much more appropriate size for your shoulder area - which means you will get a better fit.
Figure out how much ease you like by measuring a similar style and weight garment in your own wardrobe. Also take into account the amount of ease the pattern recommends. Choose an appropriate yarn for the pattern. Think about the qualities of the yarn. Look closely at the recommended yarn and it's qualities and think about what effect that might have on your project. This takes some practice and research! Swatch and make it a big one. This is not a time for lazy bones my friends. There is great information on swatching here. This is one of the main reasons why my James works so well.
The weight and drape of the fabric is perfect for the pattern. Measure your swatch as accurately as you can - to the half stitch or even the quarter stitch.

Measure it in a few places - at the top of the swatch, in the middle and at the bottom. So frustrating.
follow link This is called your knitted gauge. Change your needle size up or down to get the gauge as recommended by the pattern with the yarn you have chosen. The gauge is the important thing to achieve - you could end up using a needle size two sizes larger than the pattern - but this doesn't matter as long as you have achieved the required gauge.
You need your blocked gauge to match the gauge of the pattern. I'll give you a very simple example of why not being careful with this can really hurt. Here we slow the technique down for very visual learners. You can see my regular speed mattress stitch video here.
