Tall and Petite Sizing

This week’s blog post introduces tall and petite sizing, why this aspect of inclusive design is close to home for me, and how I’m excited to share patterns and coursework addressing inclusive height design over the coming months.

Launching this conversation is the Verdant Top, which features asymmetric texture detailing and neckline, a relaxed fit, and seamless construction.  Verdant is offered in tall, average, and petite height sizes.

I’ve also put together a go-to quick reference on Height Sizing Basics for Tops, which you can grab at the link above or find in your inbox, if you’re on my mailing list.

Welcome to Ellevate Designs.

Supporting small business in Canada and worldwide.

Our pattern designers, yarn dyers, and creators of accessories all work diligently to bring you a fresh, sophisticated take on knitting and crochet.  With so many great artists together, we’re confident you’ll find a perfect fit for your next project.

Our vision is to foster creativity, inspire learning, and encourage others to take the time for themselves they so definitely deserve!

We believe in inclusive designs, and strive to create patterns that reflect our beautifully diverse communities.  Our approach integrates a range of sizing and customization techniques, including tall and petite options, inclusive sizing, and tips for a custom fit.  As designers and creators, we know how much a seemingly small detail can have a significant impact.

Did you know that knitting and crochet ares form of self-care that foster a healthy state of being?

While we’ve long known knitting and crochet as creative outlets, more recently they’re being recognized as a form of mindfulness. The rhythmic repetitive motion helps us to spend time grounded in the moment, promoting peacefulness, rest, and balance that stays with us throughout the day.

We want to inspire your creativity!

The creative possibilities are endless! At Ellevate Designs we focus on providing you great patterns, yarn, and accessories and an easy shopping experience that will spark inspiration for your next project and encourage your passion for creating.
