Notes This sweatshirt-style pullover gets its casual, multi-seasonal appeal from a super-soft 100% organic cotton yarn - Skinny Cotton from Blue Sky Alpacas. Keep in mind that substituting woolier yarns will change the drape and feel of the finished product.

The sweater is worked top-down with raglan sleeve shaping. The upper yoke is worked flat until the neckline shaping is complete, then it’s joined to work in the round. A kangaroo pocket is knit separately and sewn on; the cowl is picked up and knit in the round directly from the neck opening. Instructions are included for both the original “mini-cowl” (pictured in the original magazine sample), and the fuller cowl as pictured here. Also pictured here is the optional i-cord bind off edging, which adds a bit of polish to the neckline.
