An over-sized, diaphanous sweater knit in the round with Nimbus - a soft, light, angora & silk blend laceweight. This sweater will keep you toasty without adding bulk. Perfect for the changeable weather of Spring & Fall. Knit up on #7 needles with almost no finishing this sweater is great for beginners & seasoned knitters wanting a relatively quick to knit sweater.

This seamless pattern includes instructions to make sizes from a 34”-50” (86-120cm) bust. For sizes up to a 40” (102cm) bust you will need 3 skeins (435yds/398m each) of semi solid yarn and 2 skeins in a multicolor, for sizes over a 40” bust you will need 4 skeins in the semisolid and 2 in the multi.

You will also need size US #7 (4.5mm) needles in both 24”-30” circulars and a set of double pointed needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)
