Notes

Love this sweater. It’s huge but that’s what I was going for, a big comfortable baggy sweater. This yarn is beautiful to knit with and even nicer once washed and blocked. It doesn’t hide any knitting sins though so all joins need to be hidden in the side seams.

I couldn’t find a pattern that I wanted to knit so am trying this one and will customize it as I go.

Measurements: Neck - 39cms, Raglan Length - 39cms, Body Length - 43cms, Sleeve Length - 41cms, Wrist Size - 16cms.

Gauge: 6 = 20/ 9cms

Neck Stitches: Cast on 90sts = Back 30 + arms 7 + 7 + front 52 + 8.

Knit in the round top down as per pattern until 1” underneath arms.
Decrease 2 sts each side every 10 rows (2 times) (Should have continued this down entire length of sweater as it is too bunchy at the bottom ribbing)
Knit until desired length - 48cm
2x2 ribbing for waist band for 10 cms

Sleeves knit to desired length and cast off to create rolled edge.
Pickup neck sts knit in stockinette for 2 cms to create rolled neck edge.
