Pattern description from Stitch ‘N Bitch Nation: “At 5 feet, 100 pounds, I rarely find clothes that fit. Likewise, clothes knit from patterns often drape poorly or fall off my tiny frame. So when I was shopping recently in a trendy boutique and noticed the body-skimming fuzzy sweaters, I knew my only hope of having one that fit was to design it myself. Several swatches and attempts at the perfect belt loop later, I had created my favorite sweater to date. A sweater that makes people ask ‘Where did you buy that?’ instead of ‘Did you make that yourself?’ This sweater, knit totally in the round, has a simple seamless, construction that requires minimal finishing. And for petite women everywhere, I have included my original extra-small pattern, a size that (I know from experience) is rarely included in knitting books.”
