Make the sweater you have always dreamed of with the Design Your Own Sweater pattern. Providing you with 3 hem styles, 3 necklines and 2 sleeve styles to choose from, this easy and clever 12-in-1 pattern allows you to mix and match to design elements for a custom made sweater. Ideal for a novice sweater knitter - each design is nearly seamless with all pieces knit in the round, only the underarms and shoulders require seaming at the end. Additionally, there are six yokes to choose from, which represent all possible neckline and sleeve combinations in the pattern. The fit of this sweater is long and athletic; those desiring shorter body or sleeves should remove one of the stripes when knitting these pieces. Sizes 36 and smaller will have enough yarn left over to knit a complementary scarf, instructions for which can be found at the end of the pattern.
