Ease is all about comfort. It’s your significant other’s sweater, redefined. Cozy, squishy, drapey--but with fit. The tailored waist shaping skims your curves gently for everyday wear, while fold up sleeves and tons of length boost the comfort factor.

Please note that the sweater has a built in 3 inches of positive ease.

Two options are included for the neckline - the classic scoop neck or Tanya’s drawstring collar. Please note that to work the drawstring collar, an additional 200 yards is recommended.

Note: If you are alternating skeins, I highly suggest changing the BOR off to one side (along an arm seam) however, when using solids or heathers it shouldn’t affect you.

ERRATA: The decreases that say k3tog should be k2tog

some people found due to tension that using the smaller needle on the neckline worked better for them! Please choose accordingly based on personal preference as well as take into account that the type of yarn/fiber you use will result in more or less drape depending on how helical/bouncy your yarn is.
