This is my first sweater pattern, made with some pointers from the Knitwear Design Workshop book by Shirley Paden. Without the lessons in the book, I would have never tried to make my own set in sleeves, even though it wasn’t actually very hard.

I chose to use the cheapest possible yarn in case things turned out horribly. Normally, I wouldn’t encourage the use of red heart for clothing, but the hot hot pink color is actually kind of cool and justifies the fakeness of the fiber.

The pattern was made to my measurements, so it isn’t going to fit a lot of people. I figured that maybe there is someone out there close to my size that might like it, so I’m sharing the pattern. The next plan is to make a sweater that uses standard sizes and is more universal.
