This pattern is meant to be worn as an oversized, comfy-cozy pullover - like a sweatshirt as a sweater. Designed to fit with 6 - 10” positive ease you can easily layer with this piece.

(3) Additional sizes to be added. Please Note: Be sure to gauge swatch for the slip stitch stockinette. I am a tight knitter. You may need to size down on your needle size for the body.

This knit begins with a herringbone stitch collar as a loose fitting mock turtleneck collar.

If you wish to have more fullness in your herringbone collar you may knit additional inches of length before beginning the body of the pullover.

There are * four * combinations with this design!! Choose from a long sleeve or a short sleeve - an asymmetrical bottom hem or a straight bottom hem.

mix & match and have fun!*

Gauge info
Gauge 20-21 sts / 17-18 rows per 4” (in herringbone stitch)
Gauge 16 sts / 20 rows per 4” in slip stitch stockinette (body of pullover)
Gauge 13 sts / 16 rows per 4” in stockinette stitch (sleeves)

Notions
● US Size 11 needle / 8mm (or size needed to make gauge) 16” circular
NOTE: due to the tightness of herringbone stitch, i don’t recommend sizing down on
needle before body of pullover. You may want to size up to a US 13 / 9mm if your herringbone is tight
● US Size 9 needle / 5.5mm (optional) for cast on & set up round (to avoid curling of
the neck if you tend to cast on loosely)
● 24”, 30” and longer length circular cords for body of pullover (depending on size)
● 30” circular or dpns (double pointed needles) for sleeve portion of pullover
● Beginning of round stitch marker plus 4 additional stitch markers for sleeves / body
● Darning needle to weave in ends
