Sweet as honey and just as charming – the Swarm of Bees sweater boasts a myriad of cables and textures that will keep your needles happily clicking away. Worked from the top down, the sweater begins with a honeycomb stitch that is worked down the body through the hip where the mock-belt detailing shows off a bee swarm pattern. The sweater is finished off with a textural bee stitch and a garter stitch hem.

Finished Measurements: 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50)” finished bust measurement; garment is meant to be worn with 2 to 6” of negative ease. Choose a size smaller than your bust measurement.

Note: If your figure is proportional and you choose to knit a size that is close to your bust size, you may find that the sweater will be a little loose just above the bee swarm pattern that sits at the waist. You may wish to work the last one or two chart repeats of the honeycomb pattern in smaller needles, then switch back to the larger needles once the decreases are done.
