Batwing Striped Sweater Knitting Pattern
The best time to wear a striped sweater is most definitely all the time. This loose, knit sweater is a must for your fall wardrobe. It is wildly comfy and puts every other striped sweater knitting pattern to shame. Maybe that is a BIT of an exaggeration, but trust me—you need this level of comfort in your life.
When you take the comfort and add the style, well that is just the cherry on top! Take a look at the Katrina knitted sweater pattern now!
Worked flat in 2 panels sideways from cuff to cuff, the unusual construction makes these beautiful yet extremely easy vertical eyelet stripes possible. Sized XS to 5XL the Katrina Sweater is an easy-level knitting pattern.

Knitting with Chopsticks
I’m Hortense, a passionate knitter, crocheter and yarn addict. I created Knitting with Chopsticks (www.knittingwithchopsticks.com) to share my creations and help you make your own.
It’s thanks to blogs that I have learned most of what I know about knitting and crochet. My mom taught me the basics of knitting whe n I was a small girl, bored on the beach (yep, that’s possible when you are 10) and since then I haven’t stopped. Always looking to learn, do more, do better and share my love of yarn, I created Knitting with Chopsticks to make knitting and crochet as simple as it gets so YOU can create what YOU want the way YOU want it.
Engineer by trade, crafter by passion, you will usually find me playing with some yarn while watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (and probably eating some chocolate, I’m from Belgium, what can I say?).
