    • Knitting pattern for simple sweater with garter stitch detail and innovative construction
    • Schematics and in-progress photos included
    • Suitable for intermediate knitters

    Pattern measurements: only inches
    Pattern paper format: only US letter


    This relaxed pullover uses the same basic construction method used in my sweater Sun Tea, but with sleeves.

    A single ply or lightly twisted yarn like Madelinetosh Tosh Merino DK or tosh DK gives this sweater a relaxed, drapey feel.

    Shown modeled with about 5 cm of positive ease in the bust.

    Skills: long-tail and backwards-loop cast-ons, short rows in garter stitch, increasing, decreasing, picking up stitches

    Sizes available (actual garment measurement at bust, in cm): 87, (95, 103, 111), {119, 127}

    Gauge: blocked garter (stretched): 20 stitches and 26 rows to 10 cm (for bodice); blocked stockinette: 20 stitches and 28 rows to 10 cm. You may need to use two different needle sizes to get gauge in stockinette and garter.

    Note: Though conversions to the metric system have been made on this page for your convenience, the pattern itself uses American measurements.
