The KNIT SAFARI Bobble Tea Sweater is a chunky, bobble-ey and cozy sweater, perfect for the cooler months. The slight cropped length with balloon sleeves keeps it feeling modern, while the open bobble and lattice work on the front and back make the project a fun knit to make! Pair it with jeans for the perfect autumnal outfit. The Bobble Tea Sweater is a DIY knitting pattern for a handknit sweater, knitted seamlessly in the round bottom-up, from the hem to the underarms. The front and back is worked separately, and the sleeves are worked seamlessly in the round and stitched in place.


The Bobble Tea Sweater has regular fit with 1”/2.5cm of positive ease at the bust - you may wish to knit a larger size for a looser fit.

The model is a UK size 10 and is wearing the Bobble Tea Sweater in size small.

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”)


6 (7, 8, 8, 9) skeins of Arcadia Bulky by Wayfaring Yarns (100m/108y; 100g), or an equivalent bulky weight yarn with 7 wpi (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.
