This easy to wear sweatshirt-y pullover is all about the subtle details, including its flattering v-neck, rounded hemline, and streamlined edge treatment. It is intended to be worn with 3-6 inches of positive ease around the bust, and is designed to have ease in the raglan depth as well.

It is knit top down in one piece, mostly in the round. Short rows are used to shape the neck and the hemline. It is worked in one piece, and requires practically no finishing.

The yarn used for the sample (Rowan Purelife Revive) is discontinued (although it appears still to be available to purchase from several sources), but there are lots of other options, some of which I’ve offered above. Basically, any dk weight yarn that knits to the correct gauge will work. Those that contain plant fibres or silk tend to curl less, which is a consideration for this design since the edges are finished with just a thin i-cord.
