Wisteria Winter Short Sleeve Sweater

December 23, 2023

I made most of this top at one of my recent holiday shows, but needed to finish it. At most shows I don't have enough space to sew the pieces together so it has to wait until I'm home. This yarn from Morehouse Farm is really soft and very warm. I find sometimes that I want a warm sweater for inside where I'm not going to be too warm. That's why I made this sweater with an open stitch. I actually was going to make the sleeves longer, but I didn't have enough yarn. You could easily extend them if you wanted to (and had enough yarn).

I used 3 skeins of the Blueberry and 2 of the Wisteria from their 3 strand worsted. This is a nice size worsted weight yarn and their skeins have approximtely 145 yards of yarn. You could make this with any worsted weight yarn.

Sew the 2 panels together. Leave a 9 inch opening at the top for the neck and 7-8 inches for the sleeves. I also like to leave 1-2 inches at the bottom, but this is just stylistic.

Make the sleeves:
Row 1: ch 3, *2 dc ch 2 2 dc in the chain space. Repeat from * until the end of the row, dc in the last stitch. Pick up 9 stitches.
Rows 2-5: repeat row 1

Weave in all ends and flip the shirt right side out.
