  • US Size 13 / 9.0mm Knitting Needles (or size needed to obtain gauge, I recommend circular needles, especially for the larger sizes, so all of the stitches will have room to comfortably sit on the length of the needles)
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Yarn Needle or Blunt Tapestry Needle
  • Locking or Split Ring Stitch Marker (a safety pin will also work)

Sizing:

  • Sizing follows the Craft Yarn Council’s standards for Women’s sizes.
  • This sweater has a classic fit, with 4-6” (10.2-15.2 cm) of positive ease. If you are between sizes, size up if you want a looser-fit sweater, or size down if you want a more fitted sweater.
  • Measure the bust of the wearer, and choose the size that is closest to the wearer’s bust measurement, under the title, “To Fit Bust”.
  • Instructions and yarn requirements for size X-Small are given outside the parentheses, with Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, 2X, 3X, 4X, and 5X given inside the parentheses, like this:

X-Small (Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, 2X, 3X, 4X, 5X).
