Irregular stripes invite you to have fun playing with colour. Panels make this a easily portable project.

The uneven hem helps the sweater drape just right.

Welcome to your new favourite sweater.


YARN
Indigodragonfly Chameleon Sock 63% extra fine superwash merino/20% cashmere/17% silk; 366 m/400 yds per 100 g; 3 (3, 3, 3, 3)skeins MC (grey), 2 (2, 3, 3, 3) skeins CC (orange)

To make this sweater in a single colour, you will need 4 (4, 5, 6, 6) skeins of Chameleon Sock.

MATERIALS
• Needles of your choice (size needed to get gauge. See gauge notes for guidelines for choosing a needle size). 80 cm/32” minimum circular needle is recommended for working the neckline
• stitch markers: stationary and removable
• Stitch holder or scrap yarn
• tapestry/yarn needle

GAUGE
30 sts and 39 rows per 10 cm/4” in stockinette stitch, after blocking

Use needle size(s) required for you to get the above gauges. As a guideline, needles in the range of 2.75 mm/US 2 to 3.5 mm/US 4 would be a good place to start. I am a loose knitter and used 2.75 mm/US 2 needles to get the above gauge.

FINISHED SIZE
132 (147, 162.5, 178, 193) cm/52 (58, 64, 70, 76)” bust
30.5 (35.5, 40.5, 43, 45.72) cm/12 (14, 16, 17, 18)” armhole circumference

Sample version is worn with 22” ease in the full bust and 15” ease in the hips, however sleeve fit is the most important factor in ensuring a good fit for this sweater. I recommend choosing the size closest to your own arm size as follows:

  • measure your arm just above your elbow.
  • choose the size that closest to this measurement. For example, if your arm measurement is 15.5”, choose size C, which has a 16” armhole circumference.
