When talking with a friend about favorite clothes, she professed her love for a bulky pullover that she always wears for dog walks and hikes. Her only complaints: She wished it were a little longer, to wear with leggings, and she wished it had a big pocket, like a favorite sweatshirt. Done and done. A long, simple pullover, with a kangaroo pocket, all in cozy Puffin. Just right.

This pullover is knitted from the top down, starting at the center back of the neck, and has an a-line shape. It is longer than a standard pullover and features a kangaroo style front pocket, which is worked at the same time as the side shaping.
