Traveler’s Sweater is designed to be a 4-season sweater. It is lightweight, basic and when worked in a neutral color, it virtually goes with everything. When you need to pack as few clothes as possible for a trip, this is the sweater that you will want to take with you. Its classic shape makes it easy to fit under coats, yet it is loose enough to be thrown over summer clothes. This v-neck sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down. No short rows are used in the pattern.

This sweater is designed with inclusive sizing in mind, designed to fit actual bust sizes from 76 cm / 30 inches to 172.5 cm / 68 inches. Measurements are given in both cm and inches.
