Knitting Pattern

I'm the tent sweater but my friends call me SWANKET because hugge is my middle name. The ultimate stash buster- but the kind where you accidentally bought 1 extra skein of random DK-Worsted yarns (or fingering held double).  

SKILL LEVEL: Beginner

Special thanks Apparition for the photography 

Construction

The ultimate stash buster- but the kind where you accidentally bought 1 extra skein of random DK-Worsted yarns (or fingering held double). This sweater is cast on in the round using a tubular 1x1 cast on then knit from the bottom up. At the armholes you begin to work back and forth in rows, shape the neckline, and cast off. Once the shoulders are seamed, the sleeve is picked up and knit on. Repeat for the other sleeve. Lastly the neckline is picked up and knit on. The collar is folded and sewn in.

Fit

This sweater should be giant on you. The model wears size 1 which has approximately 28” of positive ease at the bust. The sizes offered are 1 +2 but the neckline measurments are the same for both sizes. The sleeve is shorter on the larger size because the body is wider.

Materials

This is a true stash buster- use fingering weight yarns held double or worsted weight yarns.

Approximately 905 (1086) grams of worsted weight yarn (or fingering weight held double)
