When I took Faina Goberstein’s wonderful class on Sizing Knitwear Patterns, we were encouraged to come up with tables of standard measurements – to be used as a basis for our Excel-based graded designs.  I spent several days collating the information I could find, and adding some of my own, to come up with the most comprehensive set of tables I could.

I offered to share these with my classmates, and I get emails almost daily asking for the charts.  I realised this might be an easier way to share them with others taking the class, or others who are interest in designing and want to get as many sets of measurements as possible.  You can see by the colour-coding where each of the values comes from – I hope you find them useful.  Please note that I am not trying to take credit for other people’s hard work – this is mostly a gathering of resources, with my own measurements added in.
