When I started designing Even Flow, the yarn was so round and bouncy that it seemed to call for a lot of texture… I wanted something with a relaxed look that could be worn effortlessly… And I also wanted pockets, since I never know what to do with my hands.
The body is worked in one piece from the top down. All the texture happens at the same time, with no interruptions and no side seams.
The collar and the stockinette part of the fronts are knit sideways in one piece. A series of tuck stitches in the back neck create the “ruched” look.
The sleeves are worked after the whole sweater is finished. The pattern gives directions for 3/4 sleeves… Though they could be done at any length since they are worked seamlessly from the top down.

Sizes:
To fit bust: 30/32 (34/36, 38/40, 42/44, 46/48, 50/52, 54/56, 58/60) inches; 75/80 (85/90, 95/100, 105/110, 115/120, 125/130, 135/140, 145/150) cm.
This sweater is designed to be worn with no ease or a little bit of positive ease to achieve a “relaxed” look. This is calculated in each size.

Needles and other notions:

Crochet hook for provisional cast on, stitch markers, stitch holders, waste yarn, cable needle, row counter (optional).

Gauge:
20 st and 28 rows to 4 inches, on US 6 (4 mm) needles, in stockinette stitch, after blocking.
22 st and 28 rows to 4 inches on US 6 (4mm) needles in Elongated Stitch pattern, after blocking.
Important note: The gauge before blocking is usually tighter, so take time to wash and block your swatch. My gauge pre-blocking was 22 st to 4 inches in Stockinette stitch.
