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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, yarnover, increase, decrease, pick up stitches GAUGE 29 sts and 28 rows = 4" (10cm) in Ornamental Rib SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS SSX (27") to 6X (67.5")

Supplies Needed

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