The Everyday Sweater Dress design is a classic sweater dress designed with a great tailored fit and interesting techniques. The sweater dress features stockinette and ribbing and some more advanced techniques like tubular cast on and bind offs, gentle A-line shaping, and top-down set in sleeves. Seamlessly knit in the round from the bottom up this sweater dress has a loose fitting bottom, fitted bust and sleeves, and a comfy turtleneck. Included in the pattern instructions are two versions. The first is a solid version knit up in Woolfolk Flette yarn, a soft merino, boucle yarn. The textured yarn really shines in the simplicity of this design. Or choose to knit version 2, which showcases your favorite indie dyed yarns in two contrasting colors! This sweater dress is cozy, easy to wear, and will be a staple all winter long!
