  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    Gather a colorful pile of fingering weight yarns to knit this scraptastic garter stitch sweater. The top-down construction makes the sweater easy to try on and customize the length as you knit. Two strands of fingering weight yarn are held together throughout the entire project for the ultimate stash busting sweater. Squishy garter stitch is framed by ribbing for a very easy to knit sweater, ideal for adventurous beginners and experienced sweater knitters alike.

  • Sizes
    XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL)

    Finished Measurements
    34 (39, 42, 45, 50, 54, 58, 62, 65)″ / 86 (99, 107, 114, 127, 137, 147, 157, 165)cm finished chest circumference. Measurements taken after blocking.

    L size shown with about 1″ / 2.5cm of positive ease.

    The yoke depth, sleeve length, and body length are customizable.

    Fingering weight held double

    The marled fabric holding two strands of fingering weight together results in a DK weight gauge

    Approximately 1800 (2000, 2500, 3000, 3500, 4000, 4500, 5000, 5500)yds / 1646 (1829, 2286, 2743, 3200, 3658, 4115, 4572, 5029)m

    These yardage estimations are overestimated a bit, so you should have more than enough yarn to complete your sweater. I recommend getting a big pile of yarn so you have more than enough color choices to work with as you knit.

    The yardage estimations are for the total yarn amount using fingering weight held double.

    US 6 / 4mm circular in 40″ / 100cm length or 1 size smaller than the larger main needle
    US 7 / 4.5mm circular in 40″ / 100cm length or size needed to obtain gauge

    1 stitch marker, tapestry needle, waste yarn

    20 sts & 38 rows = 4″ / 10cm in garter stitch after blocking using larger needles

    If you want to make the rows “jogless” to eliminate the back center “jog”, try out this tip: Jogless Stripes
