This is a heavy blanket like cocoon sweater. In keeping this easy and oversized, I went with stockinette stitch and made it quite big. I also added the two buttons to the top just like the crocheted version that I created. These buttons keep this top in its place so I really like them. This is definitely a statement piece and I can imagine wearing it during the winter, curled up by the fire with a cup of tea.

It is knit flat and is essentially a rectangle that is folded and seamed to become a cardigan.
