Arm Candy is now available in two formats!

The original pattern, available here, is a traditional pattern, written in multiple sizes, with a fixed gauge. To make the traditional pattern fit you well, modifications are likely required. (My book, Knit to Flatter, has guidance on selecting a size and performing the modification math, as does my website.)

The CustomFit version of Arm Candy costs $12.50 and will give you a sweater that looks exactly like the original sweater, but all of the pattern numbers have been created exclusively to match your gauge, your body measurements, and your length/sleeve preferences. For the fully customizable version of Arm Candy, go HERE. (Note, CustomFit requires free log in account.)

A figure-conscious, elbow-sleeve V neck with seed stitch and button trim details.

The elbow-length sleeves, princess waist shaping, and deep V are flattering on a variety of body types. The waist shaping allows for significant customization based on body type: Busty gals can add flattering vertical bust darts, those with less in front can eliminate the front part of the shaping entirely (but leave in the back shaping, to accentuate the small of your back!). The sweater works dressed up for work or down for play and looks gorgeous in fancy, hand-painted yarns.

Designed for the best fit with 0” ease in the bust and 1-2” positive ease in the waist. The pattern includes notes on fit and modification.

Shown in Sundara Aran Silky Merino, color “Wild Blueberries”, 5 (5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7) hanks, but your favorite aran or worsted weight yarn will look divine, too.
