Description

This sweater has been designed as a teaching garment and includes a number of techniques. If you are a Knit School member, this pattern is included in your Pattern Library.

The sweater is designed to be worn according to your bust size. As it is a batwing style sweater, there will be a lot of ease throughout the body. If you are between sizes, choose the smaller size if you want it to be more fitted (although it will still have a lot of ease).

The wingspan in sizes 1 to 5 is based on above the elbow to above the elbow measurements. The wingspan in sizes 6 to 9 is based on mid lower arm to mid lower arm. This is to preserve the batwing shape of the sleeves.

THIS IS FOR A DIGITAL COPY OF THE PATTERN. You can download this from your TLYC dashboard up to 10 times after purchase.

Yarn Substitution 
Other DK yarns can be used but I recommend swatching to ensure that the linen stitch doesn’t make a soft yarn too rough.
