    The happiest sweater I have ever seen featuring a bajillion smiley beads. This pattern includes instructions on how to create a beaded sweater and some tips to make the process even more fun.

    SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate

    CREDITS: This pattern was expertly tech edited by Dawn Catanzaro and Brambles and Bindweed.



    The sweater is worked from the bottom up. The body is knit in the round until the armhole and then knit flat for the front + back chest. The sleeves are also cast on in the round and knit from the bottom up. All DEGEN sweaters are designed to allow for the maker to adapt for their body- so feel free to add length to the sleeve // body or shorten for a more cropped look. We recommend you grab a sweater you love, pick the closest width size and mimic those length measurements.


    XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL)
    36 (40, 44, 49, 53, 58, 62)” chest circumference for the finished sweater.

    Fit notes: This sweater is a classic fit that draws in at the waist/ bottom rib but could be blocked straight. This makes it a nice sweater for femme or masc. body shapes. Raglans are celebrated for their ease in fit. Please see the fit chart.
