This is actually my 9th David Rose/Schitt’s Creek inspired sweater. And the first one that I wrote a proper pattern for! I’ve been hacking other people’s patterns since December of 2018 up through July 2020. No more!

This sweater is worked top down in the round. Which means the colorwork piece of it creates lots of ends to weave in (unless you are skilled at intarsia in the round!). The trade off is that it is seamless construction which can feel less daunting for some. I do have a knit flat and seamed version in the works. Which means less ends to weave in and seaming involved. (Seaming isn’t actually as intimidating as it seeee…don’t type an ‘a’…eems! Tedious, perhaps. But once you get the rhythm of it, it’s not sooo bad.)

Final Bust Measurements: 28.5 (31.25, 34, 36.75, 40, 43.25, 45.5, 49.25, 52, 55.25, 58, 61.25) inches/ 72 (79, 86, 93, 102, 110, 116, 125, 132, 140, 147, 156) cm

Approx yardage for Main Color: 950 (1050, 1150, 1250, 1350, 1450, 1550, 1650, 1750, 1850, 1950, 2050). 1 skein of Contrasting Color for all sizes (you could get away with ½ a skein if you use even that).

Needles and Notions:
US 7/4.5mm DPNs
US 7/4.5 circular needles 22″ or longer and optional 16” for neck CO
(or needle size needed to obtain gauge)
stitch markers (removable if ya have ‘em!)
stitch holders or scrap yarn
tapestry needle

Gauge:
20 stitches and 27 rows per 4″ x 4″/10cm square.
(Matching row gauge is not as crucial for fit as you will be able to try on as you go.)

Knit a swatch in the round with US 7/4.5 mm needles, or size needed to obtain gauge, and throw a star in there, especially if you are new to colorwork! You want to make sure your tension is even.
