This pattern is available from expressionfiberarts.com for $5.00.

Errata: The second row of ribbing should be (p2, k1) to last 2 sts, p2 (not k2). Apologies!

YARN: 3, (3, 4, 4, 5, 5) skeins (3.5 oz, 500 yards each) Expression Fiber Arts Oasis Camel Silk Fingering Yarn. Shown in colorway: Hot Paris Roses. You can opt for any of our Fingering weight yarns.

SIZES: S, (M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL)/ 34”, (38”, 42”, 46”, 50”, 54”). Due to the Dolman shaping for the sleeves, the chest size is difficult to measure, so sizes listed are actual bust measurements. There is plenty of positive ease, so if you’re in between bust measurements, you might want to go down to the nearest size. Shown in size S.

NEEDLES: US size 5 (3.75 mm) and 6 (4.0 mm) straight or circular needles (or size to make gauge), plus an additional needle of the larger size for three-needle BO, US size 4 (3.5 mm) 16” circular and/or DPNs for neck and sleeve trim (or 2 sizes smaller than the needle size used for the body).

Notes From the Designer:

•Mio is the perfect piece to add to your fall wardrobe! Dolman sleeves and a luxurious yarn make a comfortable, drapey fabric that’s great for lounging or running errands in, while a hint of texture in the body dresses it up just enough to make for a good office or date night sweater.

•Length is easily customizable by working more or less ribbing before starting the Dolman increases, so you can get exactly the length you want.

•Sizes are based on bust sizes, but the Dolman shaping allows for plenty of room, so choose your size based on how you want the hem to fit.

•An easy garment for advanced beginners and more experienced knitters alike, this sweater is knit flat in two pieces and seamed, with just a little finishing at the neck and sleeves.

Enjoy your knitting.
