The Adult Calvin Sweater KnitKit by VanessaKnits
After designing the Calvin Sweater at the request of my 6 year old son, I thought it may be nice to have a coordinating one for myself. And grown-ups everywhere started asking for a version in their own sizes. This version is sized for adults with less positive ease than the child’s version. Available in women’s and men’s sizes: XS (32.25″) through 5X (64.25″). These are the actual garment sizes, so you can choose the fit you like.
I HIGHLY recommend reading through the pattern notes before casting on as there are lots of helpful hints and answers to many questions you may have. Have fun making matching sets for the whole family! xo, Vanessa
