The Weekend Sweater

This gorgeous oversized sweater will become your standard weekend outfit! With a high v neck and super long cuffed sleeves it’s the ultimate in cosy…

This sweater is knit in the round making it super quick to make and no sewing up. Finished with a drawstring waist and an optional pouch pocket. You can even add a colour pop to your kit to edge it all in a complementary colour.

Available in sizes 6-28, this is gently oversized so you can stick to your usual size, unless you’d like it super slouchy in which case size up. You can choose to make it as long or as cropped as you like, but we’ve knit ours to around 52cm long. If you’re knitting a large or X-large and you’d like it longer, you’ll need to add more yarn to your kit.

Optional: wear during the week too ;p

The kit is available in one colour only (with a complementary colour pop) however the pattern talks you through how to add stripes if you’d like to.


Small: (UK 6-12) approx 57cm wide

Medium: (UK 12-16) approx 62cm wide

Large: (UK 18-22) approx 68cm wide

X Large: (UK 24-28) approx 74cm wide
