Description

This pattern will lead you through the construction of, not only a very distinctive, geometrical design sweater, but one with asymmetrically designed sleeves. Alternating bands of purl and rib are used as the ‘background canvas’, onto which rows of complimentary, but contrasting lines and intarsia shapes, have been added. But, all this, together with a simple boat neck, roll top collar belies the quirkiness of this garment.

The main attributes of this sweater are the sleeves. The right sleeve is knitted as part of the body itself, curving into a shallow batwing shape, carrying on the pink and green embellishments.

The left sleeve is totally different. Here, the body has been knitted without any extra stitches added to the body to shape into a batwing. It has been ended, at the left arm area, with a straight, vertical edge. These stitches are then taken up and the sleeve is knitted away from the body at a 90-degree angle, still incorporating the pink line and green triangle decoration. Upon completion of the sweater, bright pink buttons have been added as extra adornment. I’ve certainly never seen anything quite like this design. The added ornamentation of the decorative and colourful buttons, on just the one arm, certainly brings out the 80's feel and will get this sweater noticed.

The pattern is sized for a 86-102cm (34-40 inch) bust.
This is a paper pattern, not a PDF.

Inspiration

My mother and I have amassed knitting patterns, sewing patterns and vintage buttons into quite the impressive collection. Dozens of knitting patterns, hundreds of sewing patterns and thousands of buttons have all been sorted, cateqorised and filed and are now available to you. It’s a daunting task, to get them listed here, but they need new homes. I hope you enjoy the selections.
