This pattern is simply a replica of a sweater from the Knives Out movie, reverse engineered for funsies in 7 sizes with 2 sleeve width options. It is a drop shoulder pullover, knit in pieces and seamed.

Intermediate to experienced. Must know basic garment construction, seaming, knitting in the round, following charts, knitting cables (with or without a cable needle.) At this point, many people have used this as their first sweater project, so don’t let me tell you what to do! :)

A US 5 and a US 7 needle, circs or straights for the body. You’ll need a size 5 circ for knitting in the round on the collar, and a cable needle if that’s how you roll. But really just learn how to cable without a cable needle. Your life will be much better when you do.

~2,500 yards of white DK or worsted weight yarn for XL. I’m using Blue Moon Fiber Arts Targhee Worsted in Snowflake, but I would encourage you to use any worsted weight yarn you like.
