This sweater knits up amazingly fast thanks to the larger gauge. Bulky yarn is worked in a looser fabric to make a cozy layering piece in winter or even milder weather. It’s worked seamlessly, top-down, making it easy to adjust lengthwise for the perfect fit. Stitches for hood are picked up along neckline and worked up after garment. Options are provided for 3/4 length sleeves or full, a-line body shaping or straight, and hooded or collared.
