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)

– 50cm x 14cm fusible interfacing
– 3 buttons for the cowl (Example uses 19mm Prym 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:
High bust: 31″, 33″, 35″, 37″, 39″, 41″, 43″
High bust should be used to get the best overall fit across your bust/shoulders. To get this measurement, run the tape measure around your body, directly under your underarms.
