Survey Time & Giveaway: Calf Measurements!

Women of the world, I need your help! I’m working on a new boot-topper pattern but I can’t find any standard measurements for calf circumference. This might be because there aren’t any standard measurements for calf circumference in existence, which is where you come in.

I’m gathering data to try and get a sense of how calf circumference relates to clothing size. If you’re willing to measure your calf at the widest point and fill out the form below I’d be so grateful! And I’ll share the results with everyone so we can all benefit! As a thank you, I will be giving away a FREE copy of my book, Picture Perfect Knits, as well as FIVE FREE sets of all my self-published knitting patterns.*

And know that I’m not tracking your personal data — all I see are numbers. All that’s required are Calf Size (in inches, please) and Clothing Size, but if you’d like to add in the rest of the data it could prove useful. HOWEVER, if you would like to be entered in the giveaway you must enter an email address! I’ll pick winners on April 7, 2013.

EDIT: survey is closed for now, thanks to all who entered! Click here to see the results.

Make sure to measure your calf at the widest part. Thanks!

*Here’s the five patterns included in the set: Giganto-blanket, Balos, Refine School, Perpendicular, and Slippery Slope. These will be emailed to the winners when I pick winners on April 7, 2013.

    13 1/2″ – size 2
    14 3/4″ – size 10
    15″ – size 18

    I asked the same question of some of my female friends, for the same reason, and I got numbers between 14″ and 20″ šŸ™‚
