The Colour Block Boxy is a super simple, easily customisable, top down sweater.
You can simply follow the instructions to create a lovely boxy fit sweater, but there are also many opportunities for you to customise the fit of your sweater to be the perfect fit for your body. I will guide you through the options, as we come to them, so you feel comfortable making each decision.
The Colour Block Boxy can be knit entirely in one colour and will be fantastic, but I cordially invite you to let your creative side run wild. You could fade from one colour to another, create a marled fabric by holding two strands of yarn together, colour block with coordination or contrasting colours or even add a fluffy layer with some Suri Silk or Mohair.
Designed to be a boxy fit, I recommend 6-8” (15-20cm) positive ease for adult sizes and 2-4” (5-10cm) for junior sizes
The sizes given are finished bust size (measured at the widest point) so just apply your chosen ease to your bust measurement and then choose the nearest size.

Gauge: 18 stitches and 24 rows to 10cm / 4” stocking stitch, lightly blocked, using 5mm (US8) needles

Yarn Requirements: One strand DK weight yarn. This can be substituted for two strands of fingering weight yarn if you want to fade or marl your colours. Whatever you choose to use, please ensure you swatch to ensure the correct gauge can be achieved.
Yarn Used as Shown in Main Picture: Tiny Teal Handcrafted 100% Merino DK (225m per 100g) in Urban Graffiti and Coal colourways.
The estimated meterage is calculated as the pattern is written. You can easily change the length of the body or sleeves to suit your personal style, however, please be aware that this may increase the amount of yarn needed.
