Every year, as winter rolls around, I find myself digging around for something cozy to wear that I can fit layers under. This usually ends with me finding the perfect something in my husband’s closet; when I was a kid, it was my dad’s closet. My husband is not as happy about sharing with me as my dad was. I designed this sweater so I wouldn’t have to swipe anything else from my dearest, and while I am fond of the “I’m wearing my husband’s sweater” look at home, it does raise some eyebrows at the grocery store. This sweater has plenty of room for multiple layers underneath yet looks stylish enough to wear out for a casual evening on the town. Note: Optional instructions to customize the fit are provided in the pattern.
