Making a custom piece of knitwear to fit just your body, is Kenlynn's business. While many of the pieces offered online are made to fit a range of bodies, there is nothing like a custom fit. Sleeves are the biggest give away to fit in knitwear; often too loose, too tight, too long or too short an ill-fitting sleeve can ruin the look of even the best sweater.
So on to how to order a custom piece. Every custom order comes with a conversation with Kenlynn where she guides you through the process.
