The idea for this sweater has been floating around in my head for a while now, and once I started knitting it I was hooked.

This sweater features unique construction, minimal finishing, and a customizable fit. It is started with the sleeves and back being worked in one piece. The body is then picked up and knit down. Because of the way it’s worked, it is inherently easy to custom fit to any body with a few simple measurements as guidelines.

Please read through the entire pattern before beginning to ensure you have a complete understanding of how the sweater will come together. The pattern contains all the formulas and tips you’ll need to get a great fitting sweater!
