This pattern is available for free.

It features an uneven hemline, with the back piece is longer than the front piece. It’s more like a tunic, I made it to wear over leggings.

Yarn weight: light worsted
(I used this acrylic yarn that I have a huge pile of in my stash, but I think Caron Simply Soft is probably closest to it in terms of weight.)

Yardage: aprox. 1400 yards for main colour, 150 yards for contrasting stripes

Length from shoulder to bottom edge of back piece – 27″
Bust – 34″
Sleeve circumference at widest point – 14″
(The sweater is quite stretchy, and pattern is easily adjustable by adding or subtracting foundation stitches. One may need more yarn if making a larger sweater.)
