Ready to attempt your first sweater? Designed with beginners in mind, this sweater is the perfect entry point into garment knitting. I wanted to create a cute sweater pattern keeping things as simple as possible, using minimal supplies, and providing accompanying tutorials, so it could confidently be recommended to knitters of any skill level. The bell sleeves, rolled hems, and circular yoke create simplicity and fun for novice and experienced knitters alike.
