  • 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.

    Yarn: Fingering weight held double 

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

    Yardage: 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.

    Needles: 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

    Notions: 1 stitch marker, tapestry needle, waste yarn

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