I believe it’s become a classic! Zero assembly and it has pockets! I recommend worsted wt through bulky (KNITTERS #10). There is NO finishing work in this sweater. It is knit entirely in one piece using provisional cast-ons and waste yarn.

The designer writes that this sweater can be made using any worsted or bulky weight yarn. The recommended yarns & needles are those mentioned in the pattern copy… Many have been made using worsted weight yarn on size 8 needles with 5s for the borders… You will knit a gauge swatch with needles that will give you a fabric YOU like, and base your calculations on that swatch and your measurements. You only need one kind of yarn for the sweater. Raglan/saddle shoulders, side pockets, v-neck and ribbing make this sweater’s style appealing to everyone.

Also needed: crochet hook in appropriate size for provisional cast on, buttons to fit your design.
