Inspired by ripped sweaters on the catwalks, this sweater is knitted in a cotton/linen mix with deliberately dropped stitches to give it a well-worn look. The needles are a bit large for the yarn, so that it will stretch and look lived-in from the start. Worn on its own or over a shirt, this tangerine colour goes particularly well with denim or white.

The rib of the body is designed to stretch while that of the sleeves will stay snug. The runs avoid the nipple area!!

The pattern will work for other DK yarns and if you don’t like the runs, ignore them!.

The pattern is written out twice, with 5 sizes in each, to make reading easier.
