Is it possible to have a sweater be both tailored and effortless? Georgetown says yes, with a comfortable open fit and wide, folded-over collar. Knitted in a cozy wool / alpaca woolen spun yarn, you will want to curl up in your nook with a favorite book.

The pictured sweater was knitted flat in pieces In the first set of instructions the body, fronts, and sleeves are worked separately and seamed together. If you prefer seamless knitting, instructions follow for a mostly seamless cardigan. In this version the back and sides are knit simultaneously from the bottom up. Divide for armholes, knit the fronts and back separately, and seam the shoulders. The sleeves are then knitted from the top down using short rows.

This pattern is exclusive to the book Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures.
