Using the sharpest pins you have (I’ve used Clover’s extra long glass-headed silk pins indicated in Figure 2 by two orange arrows) pin the front and back together to immobilise the garment while you trace. You want to use as few pins as possible and try to avoid skewering the ‘knit’ fibres of the fabric i.e. Your pins should go through with no resistance- if there is resistance move the pin a little ways further from your original point and try again. This protects the integrity of your fabric.
