This design is a very personal one for me.

It’s about beating cancer, about inching back into a normal life after finishing therapy, about regaining strength, confidence - and hair!

I love that peach fuzz, and while I think it looks funny, I’m just totally embracing it.

This sweater could not possibly have any other name, and the Woolfolk Yarn I used is simply perfect for it: Soft as soft can be!

A note on gauge: Don’t worry if you don’t get the exact gauge! This sweater is knitted tighter than the ball band suggests.
If your gauge is looser (tighter), you can simply knit a smaller (larger) size.

Sizes
Measurements given are for the finished garment. The sweater is designed to fit with about 8” / 20 cm of positive ease at the bust, less for larger sizes. Photos show size 2 on a 36” / 91.5 cm bust model.
Please note that with this construction, you can pick a different size for the body and the sleeves.
