This oversized sweater uses the lovely fabric drape and smooth hem curve to create a flattering top that works beautifully with slim fitting pants. Knit from the top down, back and front are knit separately to the underarm using short rows to smoothly create the shoulder slope. The body is then knit in one piece to the bottom where short rows are again used to create the hem curve across the back.
