Red Fluffy Sweater - Downloadable Knitting Pattern
The KNIT SAFARI Red Fluffy Sweater feels like a snuggly warm hug, with split sides, oversized sleeves and a gently curved round neck. This handknitted fluffy jumper works up quickly with a light and airy gauge. This big mohair sweater has a slouchy fit, and is designed to be worn alone or layered, perfectly paired with jeans or tucked into a skirt.
The Red Fluffy Sweater is an oversized mohair sweater, knitted seamlessly in the round bottom-up, from the hem to the underarms, then the front and back is worked flat. The balloon sleeves are worked in the round also (two-at-a-time if you want to challenge yourself!) and then joined to the body. The neckline is worked in the round to complete this DIY knitted fluffy sweater.
FIT: Oversized fit, with 4-10" of positive ease. You may wish to knit a smaller size for a closer fit.
SIZES: Extra Small (to fit bust 28-30"), Small (to fit bust 32-34”), Medium (to fit bust 36-38") and Large (to fit bust 40-42”) and Extra Large (to fit bust 44-46")
YARN: 5 (5, 6, 7, 9) balls of Conway + Bliss Gigi, (425, 475, 545, 700, 1020m) or an equivalent chunky weight yarn (yarn estimates are approximate)
Can't find this yarn near you, or not sure if the yarn in your stash will work? We always recommend that you knit a test swatch to check your gauge before starting out, and finding the right combination of needle size and type and yarn to match the gauge in the pattern.
