A pretty pullover sweater with button details at the neck, long shaped cuffs and comfortable deep pockets.
Main fabric: French terry, sweatshirt, or any medium weight knit material with a bit of stretch.
Contrast fabric: (so many options!) Jersey, t-shirt material, lightweight french terry, rib knit, ponte roma, double knit. It’s also a great opportunity to stash bust and use up some bits left over from previous projects! You can use the same material as the main fabric, however, the cuffs will have a closer fit.
Fabric requirements (for 1.5m / 60″ fabric):
Ava – Cara (31″ – 35″ bust / see size chart image)
Main: 1.5m (1.64 yards)
Contrast 0.6m (0.66 yards)
Dee – Gia (37″ – 43″ / see size chart image)
Main: 1.8m (2 yards)
Contrast 0.8m (0.87 yards)
– 50cm x 14cm fusible interfacing
– 3 buttons for the cowl (Example uses 19mm cover buttons)
– 1 small button for the inner cowl. It will not be seen and does not need to match the others. A good opportunity to use a spare dress shirt button!
Sizes in pattern:
Bust: 31″, 33″, 35″, 37″, 39″, 41″, 43″
Fitting tips for larger busts: If your Full Bust (the measurement around the largest part of your chest) is more than 2.5″ larger than your High Bust, then your High Bust should be used to get the best overall fit across your neckline and shoulders. To get your High Bust measurement, run the tape measure around your body, directly under your underarms. You would then do a “Full Bust Adjustment (FBA)” to properly fit your chest.
