Oversize Sweater
by Meike Bambuch Follow

I am planning on my first "bigger" knitting project. I want to knit this sweater I found in simply knitting (UK - Issue 102). I am not sure if I want to knit the heart on it. But it is going to be in a bright red. Can`t wait to buy the wool and get started!



  • I just orderd my yarn. I had a hard time on deciding what kind of yarn I want to use. I fell in love with beautiful yarn from wool and the gang. But with 22$ I wasn`t sure to spend this amount of money on my first sweater. So I decided to go for the cheaper yarn and probably not so great quality but we will see....

    You can finde the yarn I orderd here.

  • I started knitting! Yeah! Oh and as you can see I decided for a diffrent color. Its light pink but the same yarn as in the link.

  • Ähm... ok... something went wrong with the arms... It is way too loooong. Mmmh its a giant sweater. I kinda like it though... Its a little Maison Martin Margiela like.....

    Not sure what to do....

  • Finally done! Had to do the arms twice but it is still pretty over-over-size! But I love it - perfect for winter

    This looks great! Last winter I bought the same Simply knitting issue and wanted to make the sweater right away. It looked very hard to knit though. Did you had difficulties while knitting? Now I've seen your project I want to make it even more ;)

    It was my first sweater ever! I found it hard to understand the pattern for the neckline... But at some point I decided to do what I think its right... And it worked out somehow... So give it a go! Its not that hard. If I can handle it you can do it too!
