PATTERN DETAILS

Although Marie recommends Cumbria for this project, the sample shown is knit from a different yarn.  The closest color in Cumbria is Buttermere.
Construction
Stillwater is designed to knit your actual bust size with the finished result fitting well around the shoulders/sleeves/back (little to no ease) and a comfortable fit at the front that does not close. PLEASE NOTE: Row gauge is important to this design, so take care to measure your row gauge as well as stitch gauge. The sweater has a close fit around the shoulders and sleeves to prevent it from slipping off when you wear it - if you have too many rows over 4” for gauge, you may need to adjust your needle size or add rows before the sleeve divide to get the correct fit. If you prefer more room, go up one or two sizes.
