EVERYDAY PULLOVER with optional edging detail

Here’s a lighter-gauge riff on our easy-fitting Better-Than-Basic Pullover. We added twisted eyelet stitch ribbing to the collar, cuffs, and hem of the tunic version. For the hip length version, we cropped the hem and sleeves and left off edgings entirely for sweatshirt simplicity.
