*All sweater quantities are pre-orders. This allows you to let me know if there is a tweak to a colorway/color run/shade, etc. You can let me know before I get started! These were my very first sweaters, with no pattern to follow, some DK & size 7/0 silver beads, my measuring tape & some trial and error: Sweaterly Heaven was born (and the UNDERARM OF ALL UNDERARMS!!!). 🥰🤌🏻💕🧶 I will forever be sooooo extremely proud of them. These stunning pieces of artwork are, at first, knitted flat (on size US6 needles) and then are joined, to knit in the round. Sweaterly Heaven is worked from top down and is raglan style. It features beaded cable raglan seams, a 12-stitch center cable flanked by beautiful 7/0 beads (optional! But do you want “pretty“ or “super pretty“?! 🤷🏼♀️🤌🏻💕🧶). What is so wonderful about this pattern is that it can be knitted to fit ANYONE! ANY SIZE!!! Yes, ANY. All of my designs, especially garments, are written, and design, to be a custom fit, and for whatever size you are! It starts with a neck measurement that determines the cast-on amount. All measurements listed help you design the perfect fitting sweater. This design also features a never seen before FABULOUSLY sturdy, flawless, one-of-a-kind and beautiful underarm! The gauge is: 5.5 stitches per inch.
*Up to 16 (this includes up to 5XL. Simply add 1-2 skeins for each size you go up!) Yarnitoli DK (231 yards each). The two featured samples took just under 4 skeins and they are a women’s medium. Please note both sweaters are ¾ length sleeves. It is also HIGHLY recommended to ppurchase one extra skein, just in case (hence the i.e. “Medium (36”-38” bust): 5-6 skeins”) I definitely wouldn’t want you to run out and not have an additional skein from the same dye lot. I have not heard from a single customer, who has ordered additional Skeins, saying that my dye lots have varied at all. My dye lots are very spot on but I take sweater quantities very seriously. It’s a big deal to invest so much into your sweater yarn. Those skeins better be spot on! And that’s why I’m your girl 😁 So get that extra skein. You won’t regret it. Not only that, you might need the Fit For A Queen matching hat!
