The Snuggle Bug sweater is inspired by cozy fall days where you just want to curl up in your favourite cozy sweater and watch movies on the couch! It has an optional zip-up neck (or can be left open) and is worked top down raglan style in 1 x 1 ribbing. It has fitted sleeves and a split bottom hem so the back is longer and covers more of your butt!. The sweater is designed to fall about hip/butt level, but can easily be customized to a longer length! This is a #sizeinclusive pattern, and is designed for 0-4” of positive ease, but could easily be worn with a bit of negative ease as well due to the stretchiness of the 1 x 1 ribbing!

Sizes offered: 30 (34, 38, 42) {46, 50, 54} (58, 62, 66) {70, 74}
These sizes reflect the FINISHED bust measurement
Sizes 62, 66, 70 and 74 are untested. If you would like to make this sweater in one of the untested sizes, I will send you a copy for free in exchange for feedback.

Needles required: 6.5 mm for body (at least 32/40 inch cords), 5 mm for sleeve cuffs (you may be able to use 16 inch cord, or longer cord with magic loop method,or DPNs)
may need other size needles to meet gauge

Gauge: 19 sts = 4 inches 16 rows = 4 inches

Yarn required: I used KnitPicks Snuggle Puff yarn - 142 yds per 50g ball. This yarn is classified as an Aran/Heavy Worsted weight yarn, but I have also seen it classified as a bulky yarn on yarn sub websites.
I think any heavier worsted/aran or lighter bulky would work fine! Just make sure you can get gauge!

Yardage required: 675 (760, 900, 1000) {1140, 1280, 1390} (1530, 1620, 1740) {1880, 1990}
Yardage is an approximation at this point, and is calculated using the recommended length. I included more yardage than I actually used to account for people with longer arms and torsos to get the same sort of fit as my sample, so this yardage should be enough. Please allow for a bit extra yardage if choosing to do a longer sweater or if you know you have longer than average arms/torso

Extra bits required (if adding a zipper):
-a couple yards of a matching/similar colour yarn in a thinner yarn (to sew the zipper one). You could use a thinner weight yarn so it fits into a normal needle better.
-a 23 cm zipper (can use a different length zipper, you will just need to adjust where you join the work to make sure there is enough room for the zipper to fit in!)
