Murcielago is an oversized bat-wing pullover with a unique construction, trimmed with cables and finished off with an easily customized neckline. It is, without a doubt, the most comfortable sweater I’ve ever designed. The bat-wing shape gives you lots of ease and room to move, but cinched cuffs and neat trim at the hem add structure, giving it a tailored--not sloppy--look. Squishy soft Hudson + West Forge makes the cables pop and the heathered color gives the stockinette plenty of texture and depth.

Your pattern purchase includes a project planner to walk you through each step of planning your sweater--choosing yarn, picking your size, and swatching for success!

Sizes: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5) {6, 7, 8, 9, 10}, to fit bust sizes 30-32 (34-36, 38-40, 42-44, 46-48) {50-52, 54-56, 58-60, 62-64, 66-68}”/76-81.5 (86.5-91.5, 96.5-101.5, 106.5-112, 117-122) {127-132, 137-142, 147.5-152.5, 157.5-162.5, 167.5-172.5} cm
Sample shown in Size 2 on a 36” bust. This sweater is intended to have 8-10”/20.5-25.5 cm of positive ease at the bust; however, because of the batwing style, the body and sleeves are essentially one piece, making an exact bust measurement unnecessary. If you’re unsure about which size will work best for you, select one with a finished hip measurement (hip width x 2) that gives you at least 6”/15 cm positive ease around the hips.
