I found this pretty, multi color yarn recently and I immediately got the idea to make a lightweight Spring sweater. This is relatively easy to knit and since the needles are large it doesn’t take that much time.
[Update– I’ve gotten many request for larger sizes so I added Medium and Large to the instructions]
Sizes Small (34″ Bust), Medium (37″ Bust) , Large (40″ Bust)
Yarn- Red Heart Super Soft in Waterscape (3, 4 oz. balls)
Needles- No. US 11
Back- With Number 11 needles cast on 52 sts for Small (56 for Medium, 60 for Large). Work in K2 P2 ribbing for 9 rows. Change to Stockinette Stitch (knit one side, purl the other) and work until 16 1/2 inches from beginning. At the beginning of the next 2 rows cast on 21 sts for sleeves- 73 stitches (21 for Medium, 22 for Large- 77- 82). Continue working in Stockinette Stitch for 3 1/2 more inches.
Divide for Neck Opening- Work in Stockinette Stitch across the first 36 sts. (38 for Meium, 40 for Large) then sl them to a holder. Bind off next 22 sts (22 for Medium, 24 for Large) ; work across remaining 36 sts (38 for Medium, 40 for Large) for sleeve and shoulder. Work the 36 sts. in Stockinette Stitch for 4 1/2 more inches. Bind off. Repeat with the other shoulder.
Front- Work the same as back.
Finishing- Sew side and underarm seams.
