The Spellman Sweater is a design from Trysten Molina & Dragon Hoard Yarns, and it was inspired by the Netflix series, “The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina.” This sweater adds a little bit of a dark 50’s/80’s flair to your wardrobe, and is the perfect cropped sweater to wear over a dress, or a pair of high waisted jeans. Not interested in a cropped top? Want more room in the bust? Not a problem! The designer has a recipe guide in the notes section of the pattern to help you determine the best fit for your own body shape and size.
It is knit top down in the round, using a basic raglan construction, in a sport weight yarn, and it has a cable and bobble embellishment on the sleeves. The original pattern marls together lace and fingering weight yarns, and we got gauge using a sport weight yarn alone on 3.25 mm/US 3 needles - Cedar House Yarns Sprig Sport.
The Spellman is a great second sweater to knit - using basic construction techniques and adding in some cable and bobble embellishments along the sleeves.
