Top-down, seamless and knit in one piece, Stillwater is a gorgeous, versatile sweater that is quick to knit - so quick, in fact, that I knit the sample in four days! Read about my crazy whim to knit this on such a tight deadline here. And I did it not just once, but TWICE (and so have many other knitters)! If you’re looking for a fun project for a quick KAL, this might be the one.

32 (34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 52)“ bust – designed to knit your actual bust size with the finished result fitting well around the shoulders/sleeves/back (little to no ease) and a comfortable fit at the front that does not close. PLEASE NOTE: Row gauge is important to this design, so take care to measure your row gauge as well as stitch gauge. The sweater has a close fit around the shoulders and sleeves to prevent it from slipping off when you wear it - if you have too many rows over 4” for gauge, you may need to adjust your needle size or add rows before the sleeve divide to get the correct fit. If you prefer more room, go up one or two sizes.

Sleeve at widest point 11 (11½, 12, 13, 13, 14, 14, 15, 16, 17½)“

20 stitches and 24 rows over 4” in stockinette
