A super cozy, lightweight sweater, AND IT’S REVERSIBLE!? Yes my friends; you are about to make one sweater that doubles as two. Wear it with the high boat neck collar in the front and the party in the back, OR reverse it and wear the V-neck cross paneling in the front, and the more modest rear for your back. Either way is cute and stylish, and the drape on this piece is to die for.

Note: This sweater is worked flat in three panels that are seamed together. The arms are then picked up with your smaller needles in the round and knit down. This pattern is written for sizes S (M, L, XL, 2XL).

Panels knit flat and seamed, arms knit picked up and knit in the round.

S – 32-34” bust
M – 36-38” bust
L – 40-42” bust
XL – 44-46” bust
2XL – 48-50” bust

4-6 inches of positive ease designed in the pattern
