For this pattern I used:
Yarn & Amounts: 9(10:11:12:13) 100g hanks of WYS Bluefaced Leicester Aran – Undyed (100% Bluefaced Leicester, 150m/164yds per 100g)
Needles: 4.5mm and 5mm.
Gauge (tension): 18 stitches and 23 rows to 10cm/4ins square over stocking stitch using 5mm needles.
To Fit Chest (suggested)
Actual Chest Measurement
Length (from shoulder)
My design ideas and advice: This pattern was designed because a knitter asked me to! It is based on a hoodie I designed over 15 years ago and she wanted a new version as my previous design used discontinued yarns and so I designed this for her….and me. I love this shape and garter stitch is always my go to stitch technique that makes me feel calm. This is a great My First Sweater project – the only picking up is for the hood and that is very little.
