Yardage is for cropped version; keep in mind that additional yardage may be needed for full-length or longer sweaters. However, this yardage is conservative, and many testers worked additional length to make it a full-length sweater without going over the listed yardage.Feels Like Butta
is 100% polyester, but any material will work. Testers used cotton, acrylic, wool, polyester, blends, and they all turned out great.Modifications
If cropped sweaters aren't for you, this pattern makes it very clear where to add length in the body as well as the sleeves. I also added instructions on how to shorten the sleeves to fit your arm length, if needed, and where to do so. Easily modify this pattern to make a slightly longer cropped sweater, a full-length sweater, a long sweater to wear with tights, or whatever your sweater preference is.
A few of my testers actually used a weight #3 yarn rather than the suggested #4, and they all turned out amazing. If you'd like to use a #3 weight, I'd suggest simply finding the hook size that gives you the proper *stitch* gauge, and following the pattern as written because it's easy to add/subtract rows as you're working, if needed.
