A top down sweater, knit mostly in the round, intended to give a fitted look with negative ease. (Although how you wear the sweater is up to you.) Slightly puffed sleeves and a turned hem are among the dressmaker details found in Laughing Miss Dashwood.

Sizes: To fit bust sizes 30-50”

Yarn Requirements: Three skeins Carys BFL (sizes 30-34”); Four skeins (36-48”); Five skeins (50”).

Recommended needle size US 5-7 (3.75-4.5mm)

Skill level-Intermediate. Stitches used are knit, purl and slip stitches.

To place the patterned band directly at the underbust, measure down your back rather than the front as instructed. If you prefer an empire waist look, measure down the front.

Please note that I have had this pattern professionally tech edited, twice, but am still not satisfied with it. I have decided to put it back up for sale because I get asked quite often to do so. I have made the pattern available at a discount, as is. I will do my best to answer any questions in a timely manner, but am not on Ravelry as much as I would like to be, due to a change of career, so please be aware that pattern support is limited at this time.
