Added to cart
The (no need to) Panic sweater was designed for new sweater knitters who have done shawls or other projects but are intimidated to make a sweater. Join us in the Casapinka group for a knit-a-lonog!

We apologize in advance but we are unable to make modifications to this pattern. Note that if you decide to steek it for a cardigan your stitches will not be even around the opening.

There are two short sleeved versions. The slightly puffy sleeve option (shown in the light blue) is available as a separate PDF from the main pattern. 

Sample yarns:
**Light blue yarn** is Emma's Cotton DK (50% merino, 50% cotton)

**Aqua speckled yarn** is Miss Babs Yowza in Defender of Snax (dyed especially for Sharon.)

**Magenta Yarn** is Madelinetosh DK in Wino Forever (and note that this was the first version and we narrowed the neck for subsequent testing.

5 (5, 6, 7, 7)[8, 8, 9, 10] skeins of DK weight yarn (225 yards per skein. If there is more or less per skein, you will need to make appropriate adjustments.) Short sleeved version: Requires approximately one fewer skeins. Sizes 8 and 9 require two fewer skeins than the long-sleeved version.

US 6/4.0mm, 16”/40 cm and 24-40”/60-100 cm circular needles or size needed to attain gauge.

US 7/4.5mm needle also recommended for doing the texture in the bottom portion of the yoke as the gauge is slightly smaller than stockinette (details in pattern).

1 (2, 3, 4, 5)[6, 7, 8, 9]; designed to be worn with 6-12”/15-30 cm positive ease.
See Notes (page 2 of the pattern) for tips/eplanations for choosing a size!
