Hillary is an easy, slouchy tunic that is wonderfully cozy to wear. The diagonal free-hanging pockets are knitted seamlessly as you go, so when you are finished knitting, you only need to close the underarm gap and add, if you like, a neckline ribbing. Version A has an unfinished, open, V-neckline and long sleeves. Version B has a higher, rounded neckline finished with ribbing, and 3/4-length sleeves.
