Drawing A Schematic

After you calculate your measurements, you should use graph paper to draw a schematic for your sweater's parts (that is, back, front or fronts, and sleeves). You can simply use the lines on the graph paper as a guide for drawing neat and symmetrical pieces, or you can use the squares to represent inches or stitches.

For the sweater back, you need to write down a number of measurements: the width at the cast-on edge, the length to the armhole, the armhole length, the neck width, and the shoulder width. You need to do the same for the front, and also include the neck depth. For the sleeve, you write down the width at the cast-on edge, the length from cast-on edge to cap, and the width of the cap at its widest part. You might want to also write down the length of the ribbing or edging.
