“I fell in love with this slipped stitch pattern when I was swatching. To create something symmetrical, I liked the idea of mirroring the slant of the slipped stitches and accenting it all with a v-neck. The cozy, oversized fit is my ode to the winter morning. Throw it on over your PJs, and enjoy it with some coffee and a great book.” – Michele Wang
