MATILDA SWEATER – english pattern


Matilda Sweater is a pattern for an easy knitted sweater with an embellished yoke. It is worked in one piece,  top-down. It starts by casting on stitches for the neck and knitting flat, then join the stitches for the button band and continue knitting in the round with increases until you reach the length and width to separate body and sleeves. Then, just knit body and sleeves separately. The pattern includes 2 videos and a mini tutorial for the embroidered flowers so you can make them even if you have not embroidered a single stitch before.

You can purchase the adult version here.
