The Cosmopolitan Sweater is batwing design that will make you feel both comfortable and effortlessly elegant. With loads of positive ease at the bust, it provides warmth and comfort, and the stretchy ribbing hugs your hips and wrists, keeping everything in place. All the while the alpine stitch pattern works its magic and embraces you in waves of three-dimensional texture.

The center point of the design, the batwing construction, is gloriously highlighted by a carefully designed seam at the shoulders and top of arms, as well as delicate, faux-knit details around the neckline, hem and sleeves. The stretchy ribbing at the hem and cuffs graciously brings it all together for a timeless look. For best results, this sweater needs to be blocked.

This batwing is worked bottom-up in two, almost identical panels, which are then seamed together at the top and sides. The neckline, cuffs and hem are added last and are easily adjustable.

Due to the large amount of positive ease at the bust, sizing for this design is based on hip measurements.
XS – 36.25”
S – 38.25”
M – 42.5”
L – 46.75”
XL – 50.75”
2X – 55.25”
3X – 59.25”
4X – 61.25”
5X – 65.75”

The sizing for this pattern is based on the standard Craft Yarn Council (CYC) measurements.

This sweater is designed to be worn with up to 14 cm (5½”) of positive ease around the hips. Measure around the belt line (at your hip bone) and add 14 cm (5½”) to this measurement. Choose a size that is closest to this number depending on your desired amount of positive ease. If you’re in between sizes, size up for a more relaxed fit, or size down for a more close-fitting sweater around the hips. Never choose a size with negative ease.

All my garment patterns are #sizeinclusive up to at least a 60” bust circumference.
