Basic B Pullover
*** This listing is for the PATTERN only, not a physical item. Purchases made in error will not be refunded.***
The construction of this design is knit top down seamlessly and in the round. The pullover features a sleek mock turtleneck. This design includes a short section of German Short Rows video links are included in the pattern to help with instructions. The increases used are the Lli + Rli increases, making them nice, subtle and delicate looking. The sleeves feature the tubular bind off to allow for stretch and a sleek finish. The hem bind off features Jenny's Surprisingly Stretchy Bind Off in 1x1 ribbing, video links for these bind offs are included in the pattern. The length is fully customizable, however, it is intended to have a loose oversized look and feel to it.
The pullover includes positive ease of roughly about 3-6" depending on which size you choose.
(For example: Size medium has a range of 37-40" for bust size measurement, the finished bust measurement of the hoodie is 43", meaning that if your bust is 37" your hoodie will have about 6" of positive ease, but if your bust is 40 it would be about 3" of positive ease).
Size Options: (based on bust measurement in inches)
XXS (XS, S , M , L , XL)[2XL , 3XL , 4XL , 5XL, 6XL]
XXS 25-28" (XS 29-32", S 33-36" , M 37-40" , L 41-44" , XL 45-47") [2XL 48-52" , 3XL 53-56" , 4XL 57-60" , 5XL 61-64", 6XL 65-68"]
Finished Bust Measurement: (in inches)
XXS 31" (XS 35", S 39" , M 43" , L 47" , XL 51") [2XL 54" , 3XL 59" , 4XL 63" , 5XL 67", 6XL 71"]
approx. 3-6" of positive ease, meaning this design should fit in a loose or oversized manor, unless you size down and lose out on positive ease. If in between sizes, I recommend deciding wether you would like a looser fit or a more snug fit and choose based off of your preferred ease. Keeping in mind the intention of the design being a somewhat oversized loose pullover.
I used - Drops Wish which is a dreamy blown yarn in baby alpaca, merino wool and pima cotton (50% Alpaca, 33% Cotton, 17% Wool), it is a SUPER BULKY/CATEGORY 6 weight yarn. So really any yarn from this weight category that meets gauge should work completely fine for this pattern, however I would personally recommend some form of a blown yarn so it isn't an overly heavy piece. There are two links below to my local yarn store that carries Drops Wish if this is yarn you intend to use.
Yardages by size:
Yards= XXS 590 (XS 590, S 600, M 670, L 770, XL 970) [2XL 1,170, 3XL 1,370, 4XL 1,570, 5XL 1,770, 6XL 1,970]
Meters= XXS 540 (XS 540, S 550, M 615, L 705, XL 890) [2XL 1,070, 3XL 1,255, 4XL 1,440, 5XL 1,620, 6XL 1,805]
***Please note that these yardages are approximate and I have included roughly 10% additional yards for good measure and any adjustments to the length in the pattern may result in some discrepancy with yardage estimates***
(My personal yardage was: total of 573g, (Drops wish is 50g balls w/ 77yards per 50g) So, 573g divided by 50g is 11.46 x 77yds = 882 PLUS 10% (for good measure) = 970 yards for size XL.)
US11/8MM for collar and sleeve cuffs(16-22" circulars, or DPNs or longer for magic loop as needed)

10sts X 14rows = 4" on US13/9mm
