This pattern was designed to use up leftover DK yarn - to turn your stash into a treasure!!
The pattern recommends using remnants, so no two versions will be the same - this is is a great opportunity to create a unique and individual garment.

Skills needed
This is a simple batwing sweater made from two panels using a very simple stitch pattern so is a great beginners project.
The pattern os worked mostly with half double crochet (UK Half Treble) and chain stitches with some working in the back loop for the cuffs and hem.

Materials & Sizing
The item you see used a mixture of brands of DK cotton yarn but the project would also work with other fibres or a mix of both. The finished sweater is oversized so there is some flexibility with gauge to allow for mixing up your yarn!
The sweater uses between 1100 and 1620m of double knit yarn depending on the size you choose (between XS - 3X). The pattern includes a schematic and is written in US terms with UK equivalents given.
