Betty Sweater Knit Pattern
Betty Sweater Knit Pattern
Named after my Great Aunty Betty.
A truly amazing lady who inspired my slowcraft journey by giving me a hand knitted blanket when my first child, Regan, was born.
She always made time for those she loved and welcomed everyone with a hug.
I hope you feel loved and welcomed in your Betty Sweater.
Construction: Starting from the top down, you’ll create a circular yoke before leaving sleeve stitches to rest while working the body.
You’ll then return to the sleeves & work them individually from upper arm to cuff.

Pattern well written and very easy to follow. Have purchased the wool and plan to cast on asap!
This pattern looks lovely, but I haven't made it yet. I decided I should really finish the garment I am working on first. But it looks gorgeous and I cant wait to start it
This was my first knitting project with circular needles, and top down, easy to follow pattern, the yoke increases give it a subtle pattern which is nice. Looking for my next project now! ❤️
Loved knitting it as it was really easy and grew quickly
I wanted a lovely but simple sweater pattern so that I could try knitting from the yoke down. When Kerryn Gillan published the Betty pattern I thought it would tick all the boxes for me. Love the look of the sweater, pattern is easy to follow, and enjoying the knitting from yoke down.
Hey Marni, thanks so much for your AMAZING review!! Can't wait to see you in your Betty xx
