We wanted a relaxed weekend sweater that was oversized, yet supremely lightweight. This huggable pullover is what we came up with! The flattering, soft ‘V’ neckline and short-row shaped cuffs keep the generous scale from becoming overwhelming.

We hold an airy, lace-weight mohair—like Rowan Kidsilk Hazequadrupled(!) to give it a sheer, pretty appeal. And a lofty, chunky-weight yarn like Rowan Brushed Fleece offers a funkier sweatshirt feel.

This four page pattern includes:

  • Color photography by the talented Jared Flood
  • Special Technique: ’Clip and turn’ short row shaping
  • Tips on how to swatch for gauge
  • Instructions for finishing and blocking your sweater
