When I designed my original worsted weight City Limits sweater pattern I had no idea what a staple it would become in my pattern collection. It quickly became my go-to pattern for gift knits. It’s such a versatile shape and lends itself so well to any number of simple modifications (stripes anyone?) and I knew that I needed to add a fingering weight version to my collection. And here it is! The same classic silhouette and reversible detailing of the original knit at a finer gauge to make the most of your precious stash of sock weight yarn. In these pattern photos I am wearing mine stockinette side out while my daughter is wearing hers reverse stockinette side out. I love them both!
