The Sunbeam Sweater pattern is designed with 'beams' of bobbles radiating from the neck and is worked from the top down. It is made with dk/light weight/8 ply yarn, all fibers work well though you may need to adjust your gauge. Gauge height is less important here as you can very easily work to the given measurements instead of row counts. Length is also adjustable to suit your style.
The sleeves are designed to taper out half way in a subtle bell style.
Sizes are XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL
To fit chest/bust measurements: XS 82-87cm (32 – 34”) Small 87-92cm (34-36”) Medium 92-97cm (36-38”) Large 97-102cm (38-41.5”) XL 103-109cm (42-44”) XXL 110-118cm (45-47”) XXXL 118-127cm (47-50”)
If you like more positive ease than shown in the photos simply jump up one size.
The body ribbing requires a smaller hook and starting chain needs to be loose so a 6mm (ish) hook is handy.
