Gather a colorful array of worsted weight yarns to knit this top-down sweater with long slouchy sleeves. The circular yoke is decorated with yarn over eyelets for quick easy knitting. The sleeves are gradually tapered for a close fit. Knit the sleeves as long as you like while striping yarns for the cozy slouch effect. This project is great for using leftover yarns from your DK & worsted weight yarn collection.
