Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, yarnover, increase, decrease, pick up stitches

Pattern Description:

I think this is a fascinating stitch pattern! I love the way the ovals nest within the unusual ribbing. The pattern looks pretty complicated, but after the first repeat, you'll get into the rhythm of it. To make this a four season pattern, I've given you instructions for both short and long sleeves - take your pick (or work up two sweaters!).

The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 5 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.


29 sts and 28 rows = 4" (10cm) in Ornamental Rib

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • SSX (27") to 6X (67.5")


  • 860-2365 yards worsted weight yarn
  • sizes 7 (4.5 mm) and 4 (3.75 mm) needles

You Will Also Need:

  • stitch marker

At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
