Casual Pullover

Materials:

  • Bernat® Handicrafter Cotton (50g/1.75 oz/73 m/80 yds) (see below for # of balls needed)

OR

  • Bernat® Satin (100 g/ 3.5 oz/ 149 m/ 163 yds) (see below for # of balls needed)
  • 5 mm (U.S. 8) Knitting needles
  • 4 stitch holders

 

Sizes:

If you're using Bernat Handicrafter Cotton Yarn, use this formula.  For these sizes, you need this many meters of yarn:
XS/S--1345
M--1465
L--1585
XL--1830
2/3 XL--1950
4/5XL--2190
Since Bernat Hanidcrafter Cotton Yarn contains 73 meters in each ball of yarn, take the total meters you need based on the size of the sweater you want to make and divide by 73. So if you're making the large sweater, take 1585 divided by 73 and you'll need about 21 balls of yarn.


If you're using Bernat Satin yarn, use this formula.  For these sizes, you need this many meters of yarn:
XS/S--1470
M--1600
L--1735
XL--2000
2/3 XL--2135
4/5XL--2395
Since Bernat Satin yarn contains 149 meters in each ball of yarn, take the total meters you need based on the size of the sweater you want to make and divide by 149. So if you're making the large sweater, take 1735 divided by 149 and you'll need about 12 balls of yarn.
