This is pattern is a tribute to my paternal grandmother, a fantastic lady with whom I was very close as a child, and who I still miss. To read more about her, and about the sweater I designed in her honor, check out the pattern page.

The pattern includes photos, schematics, and charts, and is sized to fit busts between 30 and 54 inches.


Pattern requires 17(18, 19, 19, 20, 20) buttons (not included in original pattern).

  • Page 4, column 1: After finishing armhole decreases, all stitch counts are short by 18 sts. Stitch counts at this point should read “210(218, 244, 260, 276, 292, 308) sts (including three 9-stitch steeks).” This was just a notation error; all following shaping, etc., remains correct.

  • Page 4, bottom of column 1: Instructions should read “Work even until piece measures 4.5(5, 5.25, 5.75, 6, 6.5, 7) inches from held armhole sts.” (Rather than “bound-off armhole sts.”)
