Do Crochet Garments Frustrate You? Maybe You're Afraid to Even Start...
Download my FREE Crochet Garment Cheat Sheets that will teach you the essential components to making sweaters successfully over and over again!
I get it—you've crocheted garments before. You're not a total beginner. But when you set out to adjust your first pattern, you didn't realize that it would be such a complex process.
Sometimes your hips and bust measurements don't match up to the same size in a pattern. What should you do then?
Sometimes you obtain gauge but the garment STILL comes out too big or too small.
And sometimes, the pattern isn't even WRITTEN in your size. UGH!
I've experienced these frustrations that come with making garments. I understand. But I'm here to tell you that it IS possible to adjust patterns successfully. You just need the right tools at your disposal. In fact, that is exactly why I created these done-for-you calculators...
I understand. You want to be able to know what math goes into adjusting crochet garments. And more than that, you wish there was a way the math could just be DONE FOR YOU.
You think, the best way to learn is just by doing it yourself. But it just never seems to work. There's so much trial and error, and you end up discouraged and disappointed.
What is there was a better way? What if you could have a solution that you can come back to time and time again, without having to worry about getting the calculations wrong?
I'm here to tell you - it's not impossible! I've done the hard work for you, compiling a huge list of calculators you can use forever. And more than that, I also want you to understand the math, so I've also put together an Ebook that teaches you the "why" behind all the calculators.
You've tried to make your own adjustments before, but it eventually just feels like trial and error. You know math goes into it, but that's just not your thing. You're dying to know how it all works, but you don't really want to admit you need re-learn basic math concepts to figure it out...
It seems like countless times you've gotten excited over a new pattern release...only to find that the designer hasn't included your size. You know it can be difficult for designers to include everyone, but you still have the gnawing feeling that crochet garments just aren't right for you.
Between patterns that aren't written for your size, and the amount of overwhelm that goes into adjustments, you're just about ready to throw in the towel. What if you can never get a garment to fit the way you actually want it to? Will you really be able to get there one day?
Sure, designers are responsible for putting patterns in other sizes. They do a whole lot of math to make multiple sizes available (and that is something to be thankful for!)
But, think about it. Designers simply cannot accommodate everyone. They have to base their patterns off of standard measurements. But real people's bodies often don't fit into those "standards!" You are your own, unique person, and that's wonderful.
BUT...that is also why you can have much more success with crochet garments if you DON'T leave math to the designer, but instead take the math into your own hands and make adjustments for your body.
That's exactly what my course teaches you, and what the calculators will help you do—so you can do the math to get the right fit, every time.
When you're just starting out with adjusting, sometimes the only solution seems to be experimentation. And, there are times when this is a good thing...but not when your entire system is based upon it.
You will be so much more successful if you know the math and can plan it out before even starting a project. The key is not basing your whole adjustment system on experimentation, but knowing when or when not to experiment.
Never be anxious anymore when you look through a pattern to see what sizes are included.
You can upsize and downsize patterns without issue, so who cares if the designer didn't include the perfect size? You know all the work arounds needed to get a great fit.
Be confident BEFORE you start a project that all your time & effort will pay off.
The uncertainty about fit is gone, because you know how to make garments that fit well every time!
Know how to plan out and make adjustments like a pro.
You never worry about your adjustments not working out, because you don't need to! You know exactly what to look for before you even start a pattern, and also how to trouble shoot sizing while you're in the middle of a pattern.
In the Ultimate Calculators + Adjusting Course, you will be able to do all of those things and so much more! You can ditch all those feelings of frustration and fear of failure, because I'll show you exactly how to adjust garments and get the perfect fit.
Never feel lost in difficult math again! You'll get over 15 calculators, including the following:
- figure out what size to make
- ensure gauge is correct over large project
- adjust sleeve length
- adjust garment length
- adjust any kind of width
- add hip shaping
- add waist shaping
- figure out a stitch multiple
- ensure your starting row is the right multiple
- upsize/downsize patterns (2 separate calculators)
- designing spreadsheet
And so much more!
This is NOT a deal where I give you the calculators and expect you to know how to use them on your own. I've done all I possibly can to show you HOW to use them...and also the "why" behind them!
Never feel lost for how to adjust a pattern again. You'll get videos showing you examples of using each and every calculator. Not to mention worksheets and Ebooks teaching you how to adjust and get a better fit.
You'll get instant access to 5 action-packed modules!
First of all, you'll start by learning how to use the easiest calculators. You'll be able to easily plug in numbers from a garment pattern to figure out what size is best. You'll also learn the secret to keeping gauge consistent over a large project!
In Module 2 you'll learn how to make endless adjustments to any crochet garment! You'll learn the key secret to making any adjustment, plus how to start off a project with the correct stitch multiple. Included in this module are the calculators for adjusting length and width, adding shaping, and more.
Never again feel disappointed when you see a pattern that doesn't include your size. I'll show you two methods you can use to make a size not written in a pattern—and each method comes with it's very own set of calculators!
In Module 4, you'll take ALL the information you've learned and use it to plan out adjustments from start to finish! Ditch any overwhelm that comes with planning adjustments. I'll show how you can use and sketch your own schematics, as well write things out with worksheets.
Want to design a garment but don't know how to do the math for multiple sizes? In the last module, I'll give you access to the exact spreadsheet I use to grade my patterns into different sizes. While this is not a full resource on grading, it is exactly what you need to get started!

I always want you to be happy with your purchase. And I want you to get THE MOST out of this course as humanely possible.
So...if after going through the instructional videos, reading the bonus ebooks, and getting your questions answered in the Facebook group, you are not happy with your purchase...
You are free to email me within 30 days with your completed work, and I will absolutely refund you ever dollar.
Short answer - NO. If you have never made a garment before, this course is not for you. It is designed for people who need help trouble shooting crochet garments or getting better fit (but are not complete beginners). I recommend you check out my beginner course, The Garment Primer, instead.
As soon as you purchase, you will receive a welcome email with an access link to the course. Just click this link, and an account will be automatically created for you! You'll be able to come back to the course and view all the instructional materials over and over again. Plus, the calculators are their own separate sheet that you get to make your own copy of.
The course is a mix of different formats, including Ebooks, workbooks, and of course instructional videos for using the calculators.
The calculators are immediately available in a Google Sheet that you get to make your very own copy of. From google sheets you can also download to Excel or your preferred program (if you so desire). If you're new to sheets like this, don't worry! Google sheets is very easy to use, and I'll show you how in the videos.
That depends. If you are a complete pro at crocheting garments and you can adjust them and upsize and downsize them with no problem—then don't purchase the course. BUT, if you want to learn the math behind adjustments, or if you have trouble getting garments to fit, you will love this course!
So I'd say, it depends less on your level, and more on your interest in learning to adjust and upsize/downsize patterns. Not to mention if you want a done-for-you solution for all the math. :)
Absolutely! Once you purchase, it is yours forever. You can use it now or later!
That depends! If you struggle to adjust garments, OR if you want to know the exact math that goes into it, you'll love the course and calculators!
This course is wrong for you if you 1) aren't willing to do the work to implement what you learn, or 2) you know everything about making adjustments.
As long as you need! The course is entirely self paced, so you can go through it whenever you have time. On top of that, you also have lifetime access to the course (for as long as it exists!) So no need to feel rushed. You can absolutely purchase now while it is on sale, and work through the material later.
That depends! If you're a beginning designer, I think you would totally benefit from this course—the reason being you will have to understand the math behind crochet in order to design! Even though the lessons are targeted toward adjusting, pretty much all the calculators can be used for designing as well. I teach you all about this in the designing module!
If, however, you are an experienced designer and you know all about how to use math in crochet, this course is not for you.
