Pattern Notes

You can personalize your Perennial Sweater to fit your body and style. The Perennial Sweater will look amazing at any length; cropped, tunic, or hip length. To adjust the length you can go up or down a size for the starting chain.

The pattern is written with long sleeves but I know that a lot of us prefer 3/4 sleeves. Simply end the sleeves an inch or so from from where you would like the sleeves to fall and move on to the border, still following the stitch pattern of course.

Stitch counts are provided for each row and each size – yes, that’s a whole lot of math!

Your Perennial Sweater will be worked in these easy steps:
– Panels
– Sewing of panels
– Sleeves
– Trim
– Finishing touches.
