Chasing the ever elusive oversized, yet wearable sweater? You can stop looking; SUIT fits the bill. Combining the comfort of oversized and the luxuriant drape of baby alpaca, with clean lines and modern details, SUIT will be your go-to sweater every day!

As easy to knit as it is to wear, SUIT is worked in reverse stockinette stitch. With vented sides, a v-neckline and drop shoulders, the cardigan is knit in pieces from the bottom up. The front band is knit along with the fronts and continued after the shoulders are shaped, then joined and sewn to the back neck
