4 LETTER SWEATER PATTERN

$12

    Based on the OG worn by Willy Cartier in the DEGEN FW12 collection :o)

    PATTERN NOTES:

    This pattern comes with the charts for all letters and will walk you
    through the steps of how to place any 4 letters on the center front. The
    sample is knit using “YUCK” but this pattern allows for any 4 letter word
    and is easily adaptable for more or fewer letters.

     FIT:

    XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL) 38 (42, 46, 50, 54, 58, 62)” chest circumference for the finished sweater. Fit notes: This sweater is a classic fit with a slightly dropped shoulder. The sleeve tapers t for a genderless fit. Please see the fit chart. The yellow sample is a size SMALL.

    CONSTRUCTION:

    The sweater is worked from the bottom up in panels to allow for intarsia
    colorwork. Once the front and back body are complete and the shoulder
    seams created, the sleeves are knit on. The side seam and under arm
    seam are then created all in one go. The folded neck is also knit on. All
    DEGEN sweaters are designed to allow for the maker to adapt for their
    body- so feel free to add length to the sleeve // body or shorten for a more
    cropped look. The pattern lets you know where the best spots to add or
    remove length are. We recommend you grab a sweater you love, pick the
    closest width size and mimic those length measurements.

     

    MATERIALS:

    MAIN COLOR: This pattern is knit with Harrisville Designs
    Highland yarn. I chose to knit with the main color on cones
    and the secondary color on a skein but cone/skein will not
    impact the outcome. The sample was knit in color MARIGOLD
