ERRATA: Women’s version initial CO should be 128 (136, 144, 152, 160, 168, 176, 184, 192, 200, 208, 216, 224, 232, 240, 248, 256, 264) sts. (There is an extraneous number at the end of the series -- ignore it.)

Sorry for the confusion. /jb

Comfy, loose-fitting crew-neck pullover with no-sew sleeves that is meant to be worn over another shirt. It’s worked in the round from the bottom up to the armholes, then the upper back and upper fronts are worked separately. After the shoulders are joined you pick up stitches around the armhole opening and knit sleeves in the round to the cuffs. Then you knit the neckband and you’re done!

It goes fast!

IMPORTANT: This is NOT unisex; the instructions for men’s sizes and women’s sizes are given separately in the same pattern. Select the size with a finished measurement that is approximately 4” larger around than your chest/bust. Full pattern specifications are given; this pattern is easy enough that experienced knitters can add shaping to the waist and/or bust and/or shoulders without having to do major calculus. :)
