New Fluffy Sweater - Downloadable Knitting Pattern
The KNIT SAFARI New Fluffy Sweater is a DIY knitting pattern, and originally started life as the Red Fluffy Sweater (but after a shrinking mishap with the beautiful red mohair yarn and a very hot cycle on the washing machine, and the original yarn being discontinued!) it was remade in a different yarn. Worked in multiple strands of a lightweight fluffy Mohair yarn held together, in a comfortable relaxed fit and shape, perfect for layering or wearing alone.
The New Fluffy Sweater is an oversized mohair jumper worked seamlessly in the round bottom-up, after working the split side seams. The sleeves are worked seamlessly in the round (and can be knitted at the same time, if you're feeling adventurous!) and the neckline is knitted and sewed down at the end for a professional finish.
FIT: The New Fluffy Sweater has an oversized slouchy fit - you may wish to knit a smaller size for a closer fit.
The model is a UK size 10 and is wearing the New Fluffy Sweater in size medium.
SIZES: Adults from XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL (30-60” Bust)
2331 (2504, 2244, 3162, 3580, 3986, 4477, 4950, 5340) metres of a Fingering weight yarn with a fluffy halo, with approx 15-17 wraps per inch, equivalent to approximately 16 (17, 15, 22, 24, 27, 30, 34, 36) x25g balls of yarn (yarn estimates are approximate.)
We used 16 balls of Concept by Katia Aire in Grey 105 for the size medium.
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.
