Stash to Treasure Batwing Sweater
This sweater pattern was designed to use up leftover DK yarn - to turn your stash into a treasure!!
This is a simple batwing sweater made from two panels using a mindful repetative stitch pattern so is a great beginners project. The pattern is worked mostly with half double crochet (UK Half Treble) and chain stitches with some working in the back loop for the cuffs and hem.
Materials & Sizing:
The item you see used a mixture of brands of DK cotton (mostly Paintbox) yarn but the project would also work with other fibres or a mix of both to add texture. The finished sweater is oversized so there is some flexibility with gauge to allow for mixing up your yarn!
The sweater uses between 1100 and 1620m of double knit yarn depending on the size you choose. The pattern includes a schematic and is written in US terms with UK equivalents given. More measurements are given in the pattern to help you choose your size.
