This super comfy sweater is great for wrapping up on a cold day. Combining a lighter weight yarn with large gauge needles creates gentle drape that softly wraps around the body. The fitted back creates a fashionable look whether the fronts are open or closed, allowing for maximum comfort with the least amount of effort.

Pattern Notes
Piece is worked seamlessly to the underarms with waist shaping happening on the outside of the texture panels. Front and back are separated at the underarms and worked separately before the shoulders are joined together using three-needle bind-off, while, the collar is worked as part of the body then sewn down. Sleeves are picked up at the shoulders.
