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.

Sizes
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)“

Gauge
20 stitches and 24 rows over 4” in stockinette

Supplies
US Size 6/4mm (32”) circular needle (Body)

US Size 6/4mm (12”) circular needle (Sleeves)
US Size 4/3.5mm (12”) circular needle (Sleeve ribbing)
NOTE: These needle sizes were appropriate for gauge using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. For Cumbria, you may find that one size larger works best for gauge.


WHAT is l’écheveau solidaire / 
The supportive Skein ?
Each month, a new dyer and indie designer is collaborating to create a pattern and/or dye a specific yarn with proceeds that will go towards a charity called (MASFD). The charity’s goal is to raise money for medical research to fight Fibrous Dysplasia, which is a rare genetic disorder affecting the bones.
That way, they give you the opportunity to help the charity through knitting, a small but indispensable gesture to fight an incurable disease.
All the proceeds from the pattern will go towards the charity!

WHY this cause ?
Gaïa is the daughter of Lili, a french knitter who lives in Burgundy.
Gaia has a rare disease called Mc Cune Albright Syndrome and one of the numerous symptoms is Fibrous Dysplasia. She sadly has a severe form of the syndrome and had to undertake 4 surgeries already.
Lili hopes Gaïa could walk one day, go to school or simply lives her childhood happily. She’s ready to do everything to help her daughter, that’s why she founded the MASFD « Fight Fibrous Dysplasia » charity « MASFD : Vaincre la Dysplasie Fibreuse » in order to help finding a cure for this disease.

’The supportive Skein’ is the first operation from MASFD.
Let’s help her fight Mc Cune Albright Syndrome !
