My Favorite Sweater

Meet My Favorite Sweater! My Favorite Sweater is a sweeping design that perfectly blends draping fabric with tailored details, all knit up in our plush 100% merino wool Dream yarn. With a name that is not awarded lightly, we think My Favorite Sweater might just become your favorite, too!

My Favorite Sweater features a generously sized silhouette, a perfect turtleneck, and dramatic balloon sleeves. It is knit from the bottom up, and primarily in-the-round. The pattern includes sizes XS through 2X/3X.

Pattern Level: Intermediate

Sizes: XS (S/M, M/L, L/XL, 2X/3X)

Materials:

  • 8 (9, 10, 11, 12) balls of Loopy Mango Dream Yarn 109 yds (100 m) | 50 g (1.8 oz) each, 100% merino wool
  • Size US 15 (10 mm) circular needles 32” (80 cm)
  • Size US 17 (12 mm) circular needles 32” (80 cm)

Note: This project requires size US17 (12 mm) 32’’ (80 cm) and size US15 (10 mm) 32’’. For sleeves and neckband you will need to use magic loop method because the length of the needle is too long. To avoid magic loop for the sleeves you can optionally use a shorter circular needle size US17 20’’ OR US17 DPN’s. For the cuffs of the sleeves you can optionally use size US15 DPN’s. For the neckband you can optionally use either a shorter circular needle size US15 20’’ OR US15 DPN’s.

Gauge: Stockinette on size US 17: 9.5 sts/4”, 13 rounds/4”

Note: Be sure to work your swatch in the round since the body and sleeves are worked in the round. For many knitters, working stockinette in the round yields a different row gauge than working it flat, since they are working only knit stitches, not knit and purl stitches.

Finished Measurements:
XS: width: 30.5” (77 cm), length: 24.5” (62 cm)
S/M: width: 31.5” (79 cm), length: 26” (66 cm)
