YARN: Red Heart With Love or similar worsted weight #4 yarn. The medium size took 18 oz. of yarn. Mathematical estimates indicate that the small would take 15 and the large 22 oz.
SIZES: finished bust of 37, 46, 54” The shape has minimal shaping with a kimono styling and looks best if worn quite loosely. The sample is the medium size 46” finished on a dress form with a 38 bust. All sizes finish to 25”long.
GAUGE: 3.8 stitches/5 rows per inch in the plain U-stitch sections. If you cannot match the gauge perfectly, you can still get a nice sweater. At 4 stitches per inch the bust sizes will be 36, 41, 52”. At 3.5 stitches per inch they will be 41, 50, 59” Choosing a yarn that gets a slightly different gauge can actual help you size the sweater if you pick carefully.
STITCHES: U-stitch single stockinette, purl, 2X2 cable, 1X1 cable, E-wrap
LOOM: A Kiss regular or small gauge loom, an All-in-One loom knitting loosely, a Noble Knitter set up as shown at the end of the pattern or any loom that has enough pegs and can match the stitch and gauge may be used. The sample was made on a Kiss small gauge loom with 3 washers for spacing to create the somewhat loose stockinette. 7490, 106 pegs required to knit the sweater.
