I used Loops & Threads Charisma yarn. It’s my favorite bulky yarns to use. It’s so soft and squishy, plus it’s really reasonably priced! It doesn’t hurt that’s it’s almost always on sale, too. 😉

You can’t go wrong with this sweater. All you need to know is how to dc and sc! No special stitches and only a tiny bit of shaping in the sleeves (and even that is optional).

CONSTRUCTION

Lay pieces together. Mark where you want to sew the shoulders closed with stitch markers. Whip stitch the shoulders closed, leaving a space in the  middle for the neck. I sewed 13 stitches closed on each side.

Sew the sides closed with a whip stitch leaving a space at the top for armholes (I left about 8 rows). Stop 6 rows from the bottom to create the slit on both sides. Fasten off, weave in all your ends.

SLEEVES

Join Off White to the armhole

Round 1: ch 1, sc evenly around, join to first sc with sl st

Round 2 – 10: ch 2, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

In the next round you will decrease the sleeve size (optional)

Round 11: ch 2, *dc in 4 stitches, dc2tog* repeat from * to * around, join to first dc with sl st

Round 12: ch 2, dc in each stitch around, join to first dc with sl st

Repeat round 12 to row 17 for S, 19 for M, 21 for L, 23 for XL

Or until desired length

Fasten off, weave in the ends.

Repeat for second sleeve

      1. Right now, no I don’t. I’ll let you know if is changes!

        But this pattern can be made in any size. Make your starting chain the width you want (you can measure it up against one of your sweaters) and then make it the length you want. The sleeve pattern I have written should work.

        Hope this helps!
