Show your Irish spirit! This sweater was designed for a friend whose daughter wanted something special to wear to our local St. Patrick’s Day Parade! I didn’t have time for a full-on Irish cabled sweater, so I came up with this!

Crewneck pullover features an intarsia shamrock in green on an aran color background, with solid green sleeves and back. Edges are done in garter stitch. Unisex oversized sweatshirt style shaping with drop sleeves. Chart provided for intarsia design. Use any worsted weight yarn; proportions call for about twice as much green as ecru as shown, but you can make the sleeves and back ecru or striped if you prefer.

Finished chest measurements: S (40”), M (44”), L (47”), XL (52”)
