I designed this sweater for the coziest of days- cloudy days!

1060, 1120, 1235, 1380, 1455, 1605, 1670, 1825, 2105, 2275, 2350 yds/ 880, 935, 1030, 1145, 1210, 1335, 1390, 1515, 1750, 1890, 1955 m

Intended to be worn with 5-10”/ 15-25 cm positive ease. To select your best size, add desired ease to full bust and then pick the closest size based on finished measurements on page 21. Sample shown in size 44”/ 111 cm on a 34”/ 86 cm bust with 10”/ 25 cm positive ease.

Fronts and back are knit flat, joined at the shoulders with a 3 needle bind off, then seamed at the sides. NOTE: some testers have modified to work in the round very easily.
Sleeves are picked up and knit in the round. Note: Row instructions are based off blocked gauge. Trust row instructions and your blocked swatch because fabric pulls in greatly when being worked due to bubble nature.

The suggested yarn provides a nice, haloey drape. If you would like the cloud bubbles to be more prominent, a non-superwash yarn OR a yarn with a strong helical structure would work well (merino, targhee- less longwool more boing)
