ADULT EYES SWEATER PATTERN

$8

CONSTRUCTION

Beginning with a tubular cast on, this sweater is knit from the bottom up. The sleeves and neck rib are grown on to allow for more opportunities to check your fit. The pattern is written with the sweater pattern separate from the eyes pattern so that you may use the sweater pattern as a base for any other color work or solid mock neck sweater.

FIT

This sweater is boxy- vintage fit that draws in at the waist / bottom rib.  It features a mock neck. The sizes are XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL). The sample pictured is a Medium.

The Chest measurements by size: 17 (19, 21, 23, 25, 27, 29)" and I will ALWAYS AND FOR FREE grade the pattern up or down so that it will fit YOU.
