Knitting Pattern

    A truly Hole-y pattern inspired by Britt Marie Christoffersson's iconic and life changing (for me) book Pop Knitting

    SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate - Advanced

    CREDITS: This pattern was expertly tech edited by Dawn Catanzaro + Jemima Bicknell



    This truly hole-y sweater begins with a provisional cast on / tubular cast on and is knit in the round from the bottom up. The front prominently features the holes while the back is stockinette. The shoulders are joined with crochet seams and the piece is finished with a folded rib at the neckline. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked in the round. Finally, the holes are finished with a stockinette stitch rim.


    This sweater is boxy and oversized with a bubble sleeve and a tight, clean cuff detail. This pattern comes with two views: the bubble/drama sleeve as pictured, and a slimmer, more traditional sleeve. To check your fit we recommend measuring the width of your favorite oversized sweater and pick the size that is most similar in width at the underarm.

    Unlike most DEGEN patterns the sizes are numerical because the entrelac determines some measurements.

    Sizes are: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5)

    The sample is a size 3 with the ~DrAmA sLeEvE~
