Hello and welcome back to my blog! I’m so happy you’re here today, well I am always happy you’re here, but today is a little different because I am sharing a new project type that I haven’t yet shared before! Dun dun dun… a sweater! A sweater that can actually be worn *wait for it* …outside the house!

In all honesty I never thought I would be able to make something like this, let alone figure out how to design a pattern for it AND have it in multiple sizes! Did you know that there is a ton of math involved!? I unfortunately assumed as much and that’s what stopped me for so long lol!

Until I really sat down and drew up a design I finally realized calculating size measurements wasn’t too bad after all. It may be a little time consuming, but far from impossible and totally worth it!

This pattern will be broken up into parts…

This post is Part 1 of a three part series on how to make the Velvet Slouchy V-Neck Knit Sweater! I break it down step by step and even made video tutorials so that we can knit along together!

Below is the breakdown of the series and what you can expect to learn in each part:
