The Rib Sweater is our answer to a slouchy jersey jumper but with a bit more style. Think ‘big cosy sweatshirt’ that somehow manages to feel both supremely relaxed yet chic.
This pattern comes with two options for the collar height, the full version and a shorter version that sits lower on the neck. It is a simple piece to make which means it’s a great project for beginners.
Sizing: UK Sizes 4 - 28 (with PDF Layers)
Skill level: Suitable for beginners and early makers.

This style is relaxed and slouchy so it is a forgiving garment in terms of fit. Choose the size closest to your measurements and if you want an extra slouchy and oversized sweater then opt for one size bigger.
You’ll also need an 80cm length of ribbed jersey which usually comes on rolls that are 70cm wide (all sizes).
Materials list: Self Fabric (see above), ribbing, 1 x spool of thread or 4 spools if you're using an overlocker
Pages to print:Instructions - 9, A4/US Letter - 43, A0 - 2
