Jessie’s Girl

Jessie’s Girl is a drapey, oversized sleeveless pullover, perfect to throw over a tank in the warmer months. It’s a seamless, easy knit that is worked from the bottom up and features a slightly longer back to help create the drapey silhouette.

Pattern Cost: $6.00


• Yarn used is a sport-weight, linen blend, knit up on a much larger needle than you typically would for this type of yarn to create a loose stitch. I recommend using a similar linen blend or cotton blend yarn.

• It is meant to be oversized and is intended to be worn with lots of positive ease. Below are my recommendations for which size to make based on your actual bust measurement:
Sizes 33-37” / 84-94 cm: Small
Sizes 38-41” / 87-104 cm: Medium
Sizes 42-45” / 107-114 cm: Large
Sizes 46-50” / 117-127 cm: X-large

Sizes: S (M, L, XL)
Shown in size S, being worn with approx. 10”/25 cm of positive ease

Finished Chest Circumference: 44.5 (48.5, 52, 57)” / 113 (123, 132, 145) cm
(Choose a size that is approx. 7-10” / 18-25 cm larger than
your actual bust measurement.)

Gauge: 17 sts & 25 rws = 4”/10 cm in garter st after blocking

Yarn: Approx. 654 (776, 908, 1068) yds of sport- weight yarn, shown in Batiste by Knit One Crochet Too (50% Merino, 30% linen, 20% Silk; 50g = 208 yds), 4 (4, 5, 6) skeins. Shown in colorway Plum.
