I was going to show you a cardigan I made for my daughter, but I have changed my mind – the cardigan will have to wait a bit.
Instead, I’ll show you Sunny:
Yes, it does look familiar – it’s an adult version of Sunny T-shirt. I made it about a year and a half ago, and the photos were taken last August during my holiday in Poland, but the little people in my house kept me so busy I’m only finishing the pattern now.
Just as the kids’ version, Sunny has a seamless, top-down construction, with short rows used to raise the back of the neck, and yoke increases incorporated in the stitch pattern. The neck short rows are optional, so if you do not mind the back of the neck being the same depth as the front, you can skip the short row section. Optional waist shaping is achieved simply by changing needle size, and body length can be easily adjusted.
Sizes available: 75 (80, 85, 90, 96, 102, 105, 112, 119) cm/ 29.5 (31.5, 33.5, 35.5, 37.75, 40.25, 41.5, 44, 46.75) in.
Although the instructions end on size 119 cm/ 46.75 in, you can easily adapt the pattern to make sizes 126 and 133 cm/ 49.5 and 52.5 in, using sport or DK yarn, instead of fingering yarn used for the other sizes.
Here are some more pictures:
And did I mention the pattern is going to be free to all the lovely people who have subscribed to my email updates? As soon as it’s ready, I will email you and let you know how you can download it.
