Mariah is a top down sweater that features a lace patterned yoke, waist shaping and a loose comfortable fit. I named this sweater after one of my all-time favorite singers, Mariah Carey.

950 (1150, 1350, 1550, 1750, 1950) yards of worsted weight yarn sweater in photo was knit using Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed Yarn in the color North Pole Heather
16 inch size 8 (5.0mm) circular needle
24 inch size 8 (5.0mm) circular needle
For sizes XS, S, and M only:
4 size 8 (5.0mm) double pointed needles
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

This sweater can be knit in size XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL). This sweater was designed to have a slightly loose, comfortable fit. If you want a slightly more fitted sweater you should knit a size smaller than you usually would. To figure out the best size for you consult the Craft Yarn Council woman size charts.
These are the measurements of the finished garment. Your sweater will have two inches of positive ease if knit at the correct gauge.
XS- 32 inch bust
S- 36 inch bust
M- 40 inch bust
