No Bad Weather is knit in the round from the bottom up with gentle waistline shaping. Short rows are worked throughout the body to keep the back from riding up, in the yoke to lower the neckline, and at the neckline to shape the shoulders. The pattern includes a schematic and all measurements are given in US and metric for personal preference.
