Habitually is a loose-fitting sweater in stocking stitch, knit with finer yarn at looser gauge. The airy texture together with a bit of waist shaping gives the sweater a drapey silhouette.
The sweater has a curved lower edge, which is longer in the back and shorter in the front, created by short rows. It is knit in separate pieces and sewn together. Shallow set-in sleeves with a slightly dropped shoulder add to the casual, oversized look.
