What a versatile sweater pattern! With options for sizing from a size XS (bust size 36) up to size 5X (bust size 68) and the ability to easily add additional rows, this sweater is truly for everyone. It’s easy to wear with wide, 3/4-length sleeves and a simple shaping that looks good on everyone. There’s no set-in sleeve shaping and changing the length only requires adding or subtracting 2-row repeats.

The sample was created with a sport weight yarn – Forbidden Fiber Company’s Proverbs in the colorway Blue Cymbidium. You’ll need a 3.75mm hook (or size needed for gauge). 21 pattern stitches and 9 pattern rows should swatch to a gauge of 4 inches.

The amount of yarn required ranges from 1,375 yards for the extra-small up to 2,859 yards for the 5X with increments of about 200 yards between sizes.
