You remember those days (they weren’t very long ago, after all): You left home, you made new friends, you studied, you learned what a party really was, you met your third true love, and on chilly days, you walked down College Avenue in a comfy sweater.

This is that sweater.

This pattern is different from most other sweater patterns in that it is calculated for fit, particularly in the sleeves. No matter what body type you have, this sweater will fit you. The pattern gives help on length adjustments. On the sleeves it is specifically calculated to fit using an easy, fill-in table.

It would be useful, although not completely necessary, to have cabled on another project before tackling this sweater. If you have never made a sweater before, you will probably need a friend or teacher to guide you through a section or two, as would be helpful for any first sweater.

This is a 16-page pattern, with thorough instructions for getting a good fit, plus many added tips on making sweaters!
