I corrected a mistake in the instructions for the yoke and uploaded a new version of the pattern pdf. Please make sure the pdf you download has “-v3” at the end of the name.

This is the simplest sweater you’ll ever make. It’s worked in the round from top to bottom into a relaxed fit, modern piece that you can easily customize to the colors and size of your choice. It’s also reversible!!
Doesn’t need blocking or seaming.

The pattern describes a very relaxed fit size XS-S sweater with 38” (96cm) chest circumference.
Once you understand how the pattern is worked, you’ll be able to increase and decrease the size to your liking very easily. It’s even suitable for child and toddler sizes.

The pattern is worked in the round in 4 parts:

  • Yoke
  • Sleeve (2)
  • Body

I used for the example sweater (lengths are close approximations):
MadelineTosh - tosh sport yarn for the colored stripes
Cascade Yarns - longwood sport for the off-white

  • A: 55yd tosh sport - Cloak (dark charcoal)
  • B: 65yd tosh sport - Faded Parka (deep sea green)
  • C: 80yd tosh sport - Aura (light sea green/blue)
  • D: 95yd tosh sport- Reindeer (pale peach)
  • E: 1095yd longwood sport - #37 Oatmeal (off white)
