This pattern is available from for $6.50.

Pattern calls for 4(5,6) skeins of MC, 1(1,2) skeins of one color, and one skein each of four additional colors.

For a fitted look (as shown), choose a size with about 2” of positive ease--you don’t want negative or zero ease, as this is a stranded pattern in worsted weight.

Note from designer:

There is an error in the stitch counts listed in this pattern, after the sleeves are joined to the body and the yoke is worked. The decrease instructions are accurate as written, but the final stitch counts are not. The correct numbers will be posted at

You can follow the directions and it will turn out fine, but don’t be confused when comparing your end stitch count to the published numbers.
