Croissant has been re-released as an indie pattern, with 4 additional sizes!

Designed for maximum comfort on those days we all seek to cozy up inside with a warm drink and a good book, the Croissant pullover makes the most of simple stockinette and a garter slip stitch pattern in a boxy-style pullover, with pops of color to brighten any winter blues. Blocks of garter slip stitch in a contrast color define the hem and cuffs. The garter slip stitch is repeated along the shoulders, with a final pop of color at the collar.
