The super-easy Lemon Squeezy Sweater is a perfect first knit and is as cuddly as wearing a blanket.

Written as a boxy, cropped sweater, this pattern can also be approached as a recipe, as it is easily adaptable in all measurements. As long as your gauge is accurate, you can add or subtract stitches to get the measurements you prefer. Each section includes a note on where to add or subtract stitches or rows to customize.

Sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6) fit bust sizes 30/32”( 34/36”, 38/40”, 42/44”, 46/48”, 50/52”)

Yarn: Super bulky yarn, 475 (620, 800, 1,000, 1,200, 1,460) yards

The sizes offered fit with approximately 8-10” of ease at the bust, approximately 6” or more of ease in the upper arms, with elbow-to-¾ length sleeves, and hitting at approximately hip height or lower.

Because this pattern offers fit options, all dimensions increase with each size. I encourage you to take your own measurements and mix and match across the sizes as you see fit. The size measurements and sections that determine each measurement are in the chart on page 6.

You’ll need:
Size 11 US needles
10 US
8 US
If you have interchangeable needles, two 32” (or longer) cords, and cord caps, that’s ideal; if not, you can use scrap yarn.
2 different stitch markers
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
