The used combination of ITO Kinu and ITO Sensai is adorable, the sweater fluffy and light like a cloud.

The oversized boxy sweater is started by knitting the back from top down to the base of the armhole. The shoulder part is shaped using short rows. Then, both fronts are knitted separately from the top down to the base of the neckline, working increases for the boat neck at the same time. After joining both fronts and working them down to the base of the armhole, back and fronts are then joined for working in the round straight to the hem.
For the neck finishing, stitches are picked up along the neck, and a small neck band is worked.
For the sleeves, stitches are picked up along the armhole and the sleeves are worked top down to the cuffs.
