When I first started knitting, I imagined a sweater that I could knit no matter how tired, sick, or distracted I was. I imagined it being all in garter stitch, knit flat, with a longer back than front (so I didn’t have to worry about knitting the two pieces to the same size). This sweater has floated in and out of my imagination for years, and every Fall and Winter I find myself wishing for a cozy garter stitch pullover.

Easy A has some details my original sweater idea didn’t– a tailored I-Cord Collar, optional afterthought pockets, fitted sleeves– but the essence of it is still there. Four inches of positive ease is built into the pattern for optimal coziness. There is also a cropped option, to cozy up in high-waisted leggings or to put on as a snuggly topper over a dress.

Options include: two body lengths, two sleeve lengths, pockets, split hem, longer back.

Easy A is knit in pieces and seamed. Front and back are knit from the bottom up, then the shoulders are seamed. Stitches are then picked up for the sleeves, which are knit flat from the top down. Sides and sleeves are then seamed to finish.
