Positive ease: The garment measurement is larger than your body measurement. When you subtract body size from garment size, you will get a positive number. Most garments we make have at least a little bit of positive ease so your body can move easily while wearing the garment.
What is positive and negative ease in knitting?
Positive ease allows extra room inside the garment for your body to move around — or, more plainly, the sweater circumference is larger than your body circumference. Negative ease results in a garment dimension smaller than that of the wearer, forcing the stretchy knitted fabric to expand slightly when worn.
Which place is most popular for knitting?
Germany is a top one, with its long history of textile and crafts. It’s known for producing high quality yarn and unique brands who make fabulous rich colours of yarns with various textures. Canada is also famed for knitting, which is understandable as a country that suffers harsh winters!
