Pattern Details

Shown in a different yarn. We paired it with Cheeky Merino Joy because it is soft against the body and remarkably durable. 


With a seamless yoked top-down construction knit mostly in stockinette and unique folded hems for the collar and cuffs, this design is meant to be a comfort project, both in the making and wearing. The pattern includes 10 sizes, instructions and yardage for cropped or full length, and 7 video tutorials to walk you through the unique finishing details.


In inches: (36, 40) [44, 48, 52, 56] {60, 64, 68, 72}
In centimeters: (90, 100) [110, 120, 130, 140] {150, 160, 170, 180}

To choose your size, measure the circumference of your torso around the fullest part of your bust and choose the size that fits with 6-10”/15-25cm of positive ease. If you are between bust sizes, choose the size that will get you closest to 2-5”/5-12.5cm of positive ease at the bicep.


US 4 (3.5 mm) 40”/100 cm circular, smaller circular or DPNs or sleeves and cuffs if not using magic loop

Crochet hook: Size E or F (for provisional cast on and optional edging on button band)
