This is a downloadable item, not a physical sweater.
This isn’t any sweater; it is the sweater. The prototypical, wear with everything, wear it until it falls apart, classic sweater. As such this pattern comes with 2 different neck lines, length that is customized to your body and two different sleeve lengths. It also has 3 yarns listed in the materials section, so you have a choice of different yarns at different price points all that have the same gauge. I made this sweater in three quite different style yarns, to help you envision what this will look like if made with yarn that has short irregular, short regular and long color changes.
This also has a fit guide, that will show you how to get different fits from slouchy to tight with this pattern.
· You will need to learn how to make a linked double treble stitch, I have a video on this stitch on YouTube and on my website. If you know Tunisian, think of this as a short row.
· You will need to be able to make increases.
· You will need to make crochet ribbing if you want ribbing on your sweater. Since the ribbing is done at the end you can use any method you would like or follow the front post/back post method in the pattern.
