Are you ready for a free knitting pattern?!
When I started designing the Sugar Cookie Pullover, I knew I wanted it to be fun, but ultimately very wearable. I am absolutely in love with the way it turned out, from the fit, the drape, the colors, and the pattern itself. This free knitting pattern is available in sizes extra small through 5X to fit a wide variety of wearers, and I am so excited to be able to present this to you not only as a free pattern on the blog, but also as a Lion Brand Yarn Kit where you get the pattern + all of the yarn you need to make the pullover exactly as intended using the yarn I used.
I knew when I went to design the Sugar Cookie Pullover, that I wanted it to be made with a bulky weight yarn so that it would work up quickly. I have used Lion Brand Yarn Color Made Easy for projects in the past, and I was very excited to use it again for this pattern! It has such amazing stitch definition, it’s warm, and it holds such a nice drape when knit or crocheted. Now that yarn was chosen, it was time to pick the colors!
I personally love combining bright and vibrant colors with a beautiful gray, and so the Color Made Easy shades in Basalt, Prism, Shade, and Malachite really stood out to me. You can mix and match your own color palette when you knit up this design, but I just loved the way these 4 colors worked so well together!
