Oversize tunic with a dropped sleeve and an oversized optional pocket is a breeze to knit up. The neck is a 2x2 rib crew neck. Lastly, the cowl is knit separately. So, it is removable and you can wear it with other sweaters! There are 2 versions of the cowl. One version is knit with a brioche stitch and the easier version is knit in a 2x2 rib. Size medium is pictured on the model.
