casual is a cozy, slightly oversized sweater with dropped shoulders designed for the soft yarn Merino DK by Walk Collection.

The sweater is started with knitting both fronts separately in rows from the top to the base of the neck edges. After joining both pieces the front is worked to the armholes. Then the back is knitted in rows from the top to the base of the armholes. Then the back and the front are joined and knitted with decreases for the dolman shaping in the round to the hem. The stitches for the sleeves are picked up and worked in the round to the cuffs. For the neck finishing stitches are picked up around the neck for working a neckband.
