Description

Dixie DIY Hot Cocoa free sweater pattern! http://www.dixiediy.blogspot.com/2012/10/hot-cocoa-sweater-free-pattern.html

This free pattern comes in one size but I measured a few of my shirts and compared to the pattern pieces and I was pretty sure it would fit me. It’s stated as as 33-34" bust measurement which I’m definitely not but I like the fit. I think it would be pretty huge if I sized it up proportionately.

The only thing I changed was to add a few inches in length (although I’m tempted to shave off a bit and bring it back closer to the original length) and I cut the neck band a bit longer. My first one of these (not pictured) tended to wrinkle a bit around the neckline so depending on how stable your knit is you may want to add some length to that piece too.

Super comfy and a nice easy project! Thanks Dixie!!
