Our Sample was made using:
Baah Yarns SEQUOIA (2 Skeins, 100% superwash wool, 130 grams/85 yards) color Tickled Pink
Baah Yarns SEQUOIA (3 Skeins, 100% superwash wool, 130 grams/85 yards) color Blue Moon
Total approximate yardage requirements by size are as follows, using Baah Sequoia:
Color A: 170 (170, 195, 207, 235)
Color B: 255 (255, 291, 315, 352)
Needles: US 15 (10 mm) 24” and 32” circular needles and needles in preferred style for small circumference knitting in the round.
Stitch marker, stitch holders
9.5 sts and 15 rows = 4” in Stockinette stitch after blocking.
Actual Bust Size: 39 (42¾, 46¼, 49¾, 53¼)“
Length: 20 (20, 21, 21, 22, 22)”
This sweater is designed for an oversized, cropped fit. We recommend you choose the size 6-8” larger than your actual bust measurement. You can also keep knitting and make the body longer if you choose!
This sweater is knit in the round from the top down. Also, the yarn we used – Sequoia from Baah Yarns, is referred to by Baah as a Super Bulky, but but we feel it works up more like a bulky yarn.
