We often get questions like: „I wear a size 38/40. Do I need size M or L for my sweater?“
Clothes sizes in general are their own story already. Every brand has its own standard measures and we all know that problem: A shirt size M from this particular brand fits perfectly, but from another brand size L fits way better.
That is why we need your help for the pieces we knit made to measure. After all, your new Icelandic sweater or cardigan is supposed to fit you well. Therefore, we ask you to choose a sweater you already own that fits you well and measure it as described below. A sweater made from a little thicker fabric would be best if you have one.
The chest measurements are essential for which size you choose because we are forced to stick to the pattern repeat of the knitting design. (One element of the design that will be repeated, always has a certain number of stitches.) The pattern repeat varies 1-2 cm depending on the design. The chest measurements of the different sizes of each design are listed in the product descriptions of the sweaters. For the lengths of sweater and sleeves, we are entirely free to knit you any lengths you want.
Please pay attention to not giving us your body measurements! If you do, the sweater or cardigan will be too small.
And that is how you measure: Spread your sweater out on a table
A = chest size – take measurements right underneath the sleeves and multiply the single width with 2 (in order to get the circumference)
B = total length – measure from the shoulder right next to the collar (while excluding the collar) down until you are at your prefered length, including the cuff at the bottom
C = sleeve’s length – measure beginning from the shoulder right next to the collar (excluding the collar) and go down the outer side of the sleeve until you reach the prefered length of your sleeves, including the cuff
In case you have questions about how to take measurements, we love to help!
The depicted designs we offer for made to measure are color and design suggestions that you can change individually according to your wishes and imaginations.
The delivery time for garments made to measure is in between 3 and 12 weeks, depending on the count of orders we receive currently. During the summer months we can offer a relatively short delivery time. While in the season from September until February we have to ask you for a little more patience.
All our sweaters and cardigans are knitted by hand and unfortunately, knitting a sweater does not happen in a day. However, you can always simply ask for the current delivery time before you make an order.
Payment is not due until we start to knit, so you will not have to pay yet at the point of time you order. We will inform you when the knitting process of your ordered sweater or cardigan starts and that is also when we will ask for the money transfer. Until we start knitting it is also still possible to cancel your order. However, after we started your garment, it is not. Usually, we received your payment until we finished your new sweater or cardigan and we will ship it to you immediately after completion
