Who says we can’t have style AND comfort?

Taproot is the sweater incarnation of my favorite chambray dress; it’s the piece to wear with tall boots and leggings on a crisp day.

Taproot is meant for layering, which makes it a versatile wardrobe staple for most of the year.

Note: Kenzie is not really a true worsted weight, so take care when making a substitute. Fabric should be light and have drape, not dense or stiff. Substitutions in light DK or very light worsted that result in a soft fabric with drape on the recommended needle (and to gauge, of course) are suggested.

With enough ease throughout the waist and hips for a comfortable, relaxed fit (and nicely fitted sleeves so it doesn’t come off as over-sized), a rounded neckline that allows for layering, and the most delicious embedded cable down one side, you’re never going to want to take this off.
