This is an ideal sweater for anyone who likes a simple, attractive pullover that has a bit of shaping through the body, but isn’t too complex a knit. It’s knitted in the round, so you don’t even have to be able to sew seams well.

I’ve written this as a fillable PDF form that does calculations, so all you’ll have to do is plug in your measurements, and the pattern will generate for you. Be sure to save it!

While I do give yardage estimates for XS-3X sizes, you can really knit this at any size. You’re going to be knitting to your own measurements.

You’ll need:
• Sport weight yarn (Yardage is an approximation!) Sample sweater was knitted in Wool of the Andes Marina. (1,100-1800 yards, depending on size from S-3X)
• 32” circular needles (size 5-7, depending on what you need to get a gauge of 4.5-5 stitches per inch)
• 5 dpns (size 5-7, depending on what you need to get a gauge of 4.5 stitches per inch)
• Cable needle or extra dpn.
• Crochet hook (size not too important. It has to be able to catch worsted yarn)
• Tapestry Needle
