The Sassy Summer Sweater is SO versatile and perfect for summer! You can make this sweater as a long sleeve swimsuit cover-up OR a short sleeve tee! Wear your bikini under it or a tank top! Make it longer and wear it as a tunic with leggings! The possibilities are ENDLESS!
I used Hobby Lobby’s Sugarwheel Cotton Cakes for my sweater, pictured above. This yarn is 100% cotton and a worsted (#4) weight. It was perfect to use for this sweater because I knew I wanted to use it as a swimsuit cover! The cotton yarn is lightweight and breathable and it doesn’t ruin the look of the sweater if it gets wet or sandy! You can use any worsted weight (#4) yarn, but I highly recommend a cotton or cotton blend.
The pattern comes with instructions for women’s sizes XS-2X. It is a bottom-up workup, with sleeves added at the end. The pattern is leveled at intermediate. Simply because it is a garment and knowing basics on how to measure and construct a garment is needed. But you will only need to know basic stitches for this project.
