Patternum Gratis: Betty Minisweater

I've worked up a pattern for another one of last year's knits, this time my Christmas Green Minisweater. I've renamed it Betty after my Grams, because it just seemed to fit, and because I needed people to know that it was not required for this sweater to be knit in a blindingly bright, holiday-inspired green.

Betty is available as a free download from Ravelry and below. As a free pattern, this was tech edited only with my own eyes, so if you run into any errors or problems please let me know and I will sort them out asap.



Pattern: Betty Minisweater (click here to download now)
Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL, 4XL)
Finished Measurements: 28” (32”, 36”, 40”, 44”, 48”, 52”, 56”) bust

Hilary -

You can put a download link on your website that links to ravelry but doesn't require people to be members.

Let me know if you need help doing that. Its super easy.
