Any size! We’ll look at standard sizing, and help you create the perfect fit, or if you just want to make subtle tweaks, that is okay too!
Look under Description tab for more explanation of Adapt a Drop Shoulder Pullover
Nothing heavier than worsted yarn, so 4.5 stitches/inch max. We need to be able to fine-tune!
Size to work with your yarn. I’ll give guidance.
Usual knitting stuff. Also tape measure, pencil, and a spread sheet app.
Anything worsted to fingering. Just remember that the finer the yarn, the more knitting, but the better for fine-tuning. DK or sport is probably my recommendation. You may need some assistance on some of the measurement taking, but I often measure myself.
See the sketches under Description. You will get larger versions!
