Mayu is a top-down, seamless, raglan sleeve construction sweater. The cable down the front, and the color block pattern help to keep your interest while knitting. While Mayu was designed to be a bit oversized, there is some waist and hip shaping to make sure the sweater remains flattering! Best thing is that Mayu knits up super quick in the Paloma Tweed (or any similarly gauged bulky weight yarn), and so the project just flies off your needles!
Mayu was originally designed to be that super comfy sweater that ends up being your default sweater, once winter hits. With that in mind, the intended ease is meant to be up to +4”, but Mayu can be comfortably worn from anywhere between -2” to +4”. The model (me) is wearing a 39.75” bust circumference sweater with about 3” of positive ease.
While this pattern has been professionally tech edited, I would like to get a few testers to try out the different sizes in various styles of ease. Please see my forum thread here to see more about how to test!
