Who invented sitting in a circle, munching on snacks, and chatting for hours? Knitters did! Share photos and progress, join knit alongs, chat with friends near and far, or just post endless close-ups of your cat!
You can take your knitting everywhere, and KnitFit App makes patterns fully mobile optimized so you can navigate them easily on small screens.
KnitFit takes the measurements you put into it and uses equations developed by an actual knitting-math magician to generate a custom pattern for your unique shape. Let's do the math on this: technology + body positivity = loving ourselves better.
No one loves knitting math more than we do, but sometimes knitters just want to knit. Store your measurements and those of others, save your favorite modifications and add them to any pattern, and cast on with confidence!
Knitting a garment can take months, so trusting that you have a top quality, well written, and easily accessible pattern by your side makes all the difference during the journey.
Free up more time to spend on the creative aspects of designing, eliminating the math gymnastics and endless spreadsheet gazing so you can get to the next step! Sign up here.
KnitFit empowers yarn substitution for climate or body temperature—it makes the necessary calculations based on your gauge swatch and fiber choice, integrating it into your pattern.
We’re building KnitFit like a sweater—loop by loop...by loop...by loop. Here are some of our upcoming loops:

We offer a wide range of diverse, unique, and beautiful styles that we feel our knitting community will find interesting and entertaining to knit. Knitting a garment can take months, so trusting that you have a top quality, well written, and easily accessible pattern by your side makes all the difference during the journey.
KnitFit only accepts patterns from designers if they have clear, concise, unambiguous directions, and all patterns are professionally edited and reviewed.

Jane didn’t even swatch for her first sweater (“It was intended for my husband. However, it fit Uncle Peter, who is 6’6”).
Her creative and technical sides have always been
separate, waiting to blend into a sole pursuit.
Jane spent 20 years in the Computer Aided Engineering industry, keeping crafting compartmentalized from the tech side of her brain. But after a cross-country move, knitting became a way to connect with older women in her husband’s family.
When a designer friend aided her deep dive into calculating modications and mastering pattern-math, she began to see the power of blending creativity and technical thinking.
In 2007, she opened an LYS; Needle in a Haystack.
The many insights gained from running an LYS led to so many ideas. Customers spent weeks or months knitting sweaters in beloved yarns, often only to have them fit poorly.
She realized then that knitting-math could be
automated--in an app!
Between her own tech background and her husband Dana’s, the skills were there to make it a reality. She began work on the KnitFit app, and suddenly more and more possibilities began to open up.
She began adding features to allow it to be a place for all knitters to feel welcome. Jane’s dream is for KnitFit to allow knitters to get a perfect fit not just in the garments they knit.
