After knitting my umpteenth cowl using Lion Brand Go for Faux yarn, I thought, “wouldn’t it be nice to have an oversized sweater made out of this cozy yarn?” I thought it would be like wearing a teddy bear! And so one night after putting my son to bed, I grabbed a few skeins and just started knitting. After 3 days, I was done with the prototype and now we can all be cozy and warm in the softest sweater you’ll ever knit.
Fit: This pullover is intended to be oversized with 3-6" of positive ease. Choose your size based on your chest/bust measurement + your desired ease. Adjust sleeve length by +/- the number of rounds before the cuff; adjust the body length by +/- the number of rounds. Adding length will require additional yardage. Be sure to order extra yarn.
For reference, sample shown has +4” of positive ease.
Schematic and full chart with all measurements is provided.
Video Tutorial: A video is embedded into the pattern showing the cable cast on.
