An oversized boyfriend sweater featuring a boat neckline, a lace front panel with slimming moss stitch borders (all sizes except size Small), lace accents on extra long sleeves, and infinite warmth on crisp autumn days.

As an unexpected bonus, the ribbed texture of the lace makes it easy to roll up the sleeves when your hands are warm.


Bulky yarn and large needles make this sweater a quick knit, while the large textures create interest and balance the oversize sweater.

A-line shaping is executed by inserting a decorative gusset on the front and back.
