The Boyfriend Sweater

$ 0

The Boyfriend Sweater is a true classic; it is extremely comfortable and not at all fussy!


This sweater is meant to be comfortable and float over your body shape, however, you may decide how tight or loose you want the sweater to be by selecting the ease you want added to your measurements:

  • Standard: 1.5 inches will be added to your measurements for a comfortable fit that glides over your body; or,
  • Casual: 3 inches will be added to your measurements for a loose fit.

You will need to take the following measurements for your custom pattern at checkout:

  • Lower Edge Width
  • Length from Lower Edge to Underarm
  • Waist
  • Bust
  • Wrist Circumference

  • Upper Arm Circumference
  • Length from Wrist to Underarm
