Jessie’s Girl is a drapey, oversized sleeveless pullover, perfect to throw over a tank in the warmer months. It’s a seamless, easy knit that is worked from the bottom up and features a slightly longer back to help create the drapey silhouette.

Pattern Info:

Sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
Shown in size 1, being worn with approx 10”/25 cm of
positive ease.

Finished Circumference:
44.5 (48.5, 52, 57, 62, 67)”/113 (123, 132, 145, 157, 170) cm

Picking a Size:
Top is meant to be oversized and is intended to be worn with lots of positive ease. Pick a size that is approx 7-11”/18-28 cm) larger than your actual bust measurement if you would like a look similar to that photographed. If you want a more fitted look, choose a size that is only 3-6”/8-15 cm larger than your actu- al bust measurement.

Gauge: 17 sts & 25 rnds = 4”/10 cm in Garter St in the rnd after blocking

Yarn: Approx. 654 (776, 908, 1068, 1155, 1240) yds of sport or dk-weight yarn, shown in Batiste by Knit One Crochet Too (50% Merino, 30% linen, 20% Silk; 50g = 208 yds), 4 (4, 5, 6, 6, 6) skeins. Shown in color Plum.

Yarn used is a sport-weight, linen blend, knit up on a much larger needle than you typically would for this type of yarn to create a loose stitch. I recommend using a similar linen blend or cotton blend yarn.

Needles & Other Supplies:
