We’ve all had that “most comfy sweatshirt” in our lives; the one we reach for when we want to relax and let our hair down.

I have one of these sweatshirts that has become so threadbare that I no longer wear it out of the house….its reserved for night time tv watching, or curling up with a good book.

I wanted a “wearable in public” replacement for this favorite sweatshirt of mine and so, I took the exact measurements and created a knit version.

This all season piece is so comfortable, classic and is a perfect blank canvas for great hand dyed yarns.

Optional short row shaping is written into the pattern for shaping the back of the neck.

Finished Bust Measurement: 35 (39, 43, 47, 51, 55, 59, 63)”/89 (99, 109, 119.5, 129.5, 139.5, 150, 160)cm (intended to be worn with 3-4”/7.5-10cm positive ease)

Yarn: Madelinetosh, Tosh Vintage (100% merino; 200 yards/183m per 100g skein): Antler: 6 (7, 7, 8, 9, 9, 10, 11) skeins or 1125 (1225, 1375, 1500, 1625, 1775, 1925, 2075) yards/1025 (1125, 1250, 1375, 1500, 1625, 1775, 1900)m of a worsted weight yarn
