It Goes Both Ways
It Goes Both Ways by Swanky Emu Knits | A size-inclusive, custom-sized, top down OR bottom up sweater. The pattern has no upper size limits, it is completely customized using a few of your unique measurements.
Gauge: 20 - 26 stitches and 24 - 40 rows = 4” (10 cm) in plain stockinette stitch
Finished Measurements: Custom, based on individual measurements
Materials Used: Sport, DK, or Worsted weight wool
Needle Size: size needed to obtain gauge
Pattern Includes: Pattern purchase includes both written instructions and an accompanying (downloadable) spreadsheet. The spreadsheet is used to automatically customize the pattern to your unique set of body measurements, independently, as well as to your precise stitch and row gauge. A complete custom fit based on your unique set of measurements. As with all Sizing With Spreadsheets patterns, each portion of the pattern is always tied back to a specific body measurement. No giant armholes or neck just because you have a large bust/chest circumference!
Your spreadsheet also includes guidance on all sleeve lengths, optional short row shaping of the back neck, and several neck ease options.
Skill Level: Beginner - Intermediate
Other Details: The garment has approximately 0” (0 cm) of ease across the upper torso and arms. As part of this automatic scaling, your sweater will have more or fewer small stripes across the yoke to keep it the same proportion across different body sizes. A blank yoke chart is provided to help you map out your sweater’s yoke according to the spreadsheet’s instructions. Choose one contrasting color or many!
