The FluoresKnit combines my love of bubble sleeves with my love of fluorescent colors. It is knit from the bottom-up holding a strand of sock weight yarn with a strand of worsted weight yarn to create a slightly marled effect. This cropped sweater is customizable with the option of a plunging V or shallower V-neck as well as instructions for modifying the body & sleeve length.
When you purchase the pattern, you will be able to download 2 different PDFs depending on your v-neck preference.

Choose the size closest to your actual chest measurement for a more relaxed look or choose a size with negative ease for a more fitted look. If in-between sizes, I recommend sizing down.
I am a 36” chest and am wearing the size Medium in the original purple and highlighter yellow version.
In the olive green and hot pink version I am wearing the size XS.
Disclaimer: the 4XL and 5XL plunge have not been test knit. The 5XL shallow V is still in testing mode!
