I’m always looking for something basic that will help me look put together when I run flailing out of the house, streaming dance shoes, water bottles, basketballs, mail, and the such. This sweater was my answer to the fact that I am NOT very organized or composed- it’s simple and fresh with just enough elegance to help me look polished.

A clean, classic twist on the basic pullover. What makes this special is subtle empire waist shaping creates a flattering silhouette, skimming over the lower body, while a fresh split hem adds some angles. An elegant boat neck drapes nicely across the collarbones.

Pairs well with heels or flip flops, a night on the town or a day running errands.

Perfect for beginner knitters or seasoned veterans who want something relatively mindless.

Errata: 188 stitches for the size 37.5 inches (the second number after the ) instead of 184.
