The Easy Bulky One - Printed Pattern by Joji Locatelli

Sew To Speak

The Easy Bulky One - Printed Pattern by Joji Locatelli

$7.00 (per 1/2 yard)

The Easy Bulky One is the perfect first sweater for those knitters who’ve always been afraid of making one. With its comfortable relaxed fit, you’ll be sure that it will fit you no matter what. Even if you don’t hit gauge perfectly…

The sweater itself is SO SIMPLE! a perfect square, no shaping for shoulders, no crazy short rows. Just hours of simple, relaxing knitting. However, it has been carefully studied to fit female bodies and proportions to flatter.

But this sweater is not only for beginner knitters. It is also perfect for the traveler knitter (I promise this project requires no brain power), for the experienced knitter who needs a break, for the fashion forward knitter and for the classic one…
I literally couldn’t find any situation that this sweater project wasn’t perfect for…
