This is such a comfy sweater to knit and wear. It has a boat neckline, is oversized, knitted all in one piece with beautiful lace borders around the bottom edges of the body and sleeves.
Choose from a longer or shorter lacy bottom border for the body, as you may or may not like your mid section to be somewhat open. You can also adjust the sleeve length.

The pattern is written, has a schematic, a lace chart and a how to do the Kitchener stitch video link.
