'Lucy' The Original Balloon Sleeved Sweater Knitting Pattern
'Lucy' is a cheeky, fashionable, fun, and lovely sweater. Lucy is the perfect ultra-fashionable sweater for the cooler months of the year. We also have' Lucy Light' made from luxurious silk and soft kid mohair.
Lucy is knitted using a strand of Silk Mohair and a strand of Sesia Nordica worked together. Do not be alarmed, once you have cast on the two stitches automatically 'stick' together as one stitch. This gives the most glorious appearance and feel to your sweater.

Tension: Approximately 15 sts and 20 rows to 10 cm. If you are a loose knitter please use smaller needles, if a tight knitter then use a size larger.
*As we all knit to a slightly different tension, yarn amounts will vary slightly from one knitter to the next. It's always prudent to take extra yarn if you know you have a habit of running out
Lucy is a fitted sweater. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, please knit a bigger size.
