Is a new design needed for each sweater size?
Yes. But you can copy a design to get there quicker.

Create one or several copies with the "Share design" button top right in the Online Designer (Use landscape orientation on mobile device to see the button).

Click on the link displayed, a new tab/window will open. Put the design shown there in the cart. Repeat to get several copies.

Select size
Open the copy in the Online Designer by clicking "Edit design".

Change size of the sweater on the left side.

How does resize affect design?

When a different sweater size is selected, the cut of the sweater, the background pattern and the elements in the design are scaled up or down. Depending on the elements / pattern, you may not notice this at all. E.g. photos that are large enough will be re-rendered and look almost the same.
For elements with symmetrical patterns or very small details, a rescale usually leads to this:
From a distance, the pattern still looks ok, and hardly anyone will notice. But when zooming in the element in the Online Designer, or going very close in the knitted sweater, you can see that it is not perfect anymore.

Cutting instead of scaling
This effect can be avoided by either putting the element back to 100% size. Bottom right of a selected element, the size is shown. You can put it back to 100% size.
But this only works if there are not too many elements in the design, and it will not work for background patterns.

The alternative is to cut out all sizes from one size, usually the largest one desired.
So you loose some of the design, because sweater size S is smaller and has less space to design than an XL. But because the elements are not scaled up or down, the design stays pixel perfect.

If you want to have sizes edited this way, create the link to the design with the "Share design" button and send it to us. We will cut out the other sizes and send you the order link(s), or put in the order manually.
