BEFORE PURCHASING THIS PATTERN
This sweater is worked using the Cocoknits Method, a commonsense system for knitting seamless, tailored sweaters from the top down. The Cocoknits Method is explained in detail in Cocoknits Sweater Workshop by Julie Weisenberger.

All of the page numbers in this pattern refer to the pages in Cocoknits Sweater Workshop, where the techniques are explained in detail. Purchase Cocoknits Sweater Workshop or visit your local yarn shop.

Finished Measurements
Finished Bust/waist/hip circumference: 41.25 (45.5, 49.75, 54.25, 58.5, 62.75)” / 110 (119, 128, 137, 146, 154) cm (see note below)

Note that after wearing, the weight of garment will pull the circumference closer to 37 (40, 44, 48, 52, 55) “ / 94 (102, 112, 122, 132, 140) cm and the length to 27 (27.5, 28.5, 29, 29.75, 30.5)” / 68 (70, 72, 74, 76, 77) cm. Because the garment is straight with no waist/hip shaping, knit a big enough circumference for your body wherever you plan to end the length.
