This oversized dolman top was inspired by modern loungewear. Knit at a relaxed, lofty gauge, the oversized fit is perfect for cozying up. The clean shape features several subtle details – sideways-knit direction, shaped lower hem, exposed shoulder seams and a generous fold-over collar that adds to the relaxed feel. The long, ribbed cuffs keep the garment fitted through the lower arm and can easily be doubled back, or worn slouchy.


  • Body is knit in two pieces, Back and Front, from cuff to cuff (sideways).
  • After working Front and Back flat and seaming together, the collar, ribbed cuffs and hem are all picked up and worked in the round directly from the garment.

Finished Gauge:
22 stitches & 32 rows = 4” in stockinette stitch with Size A needles, after blocking

Note that finished (blocked) Row Gauge is of critical importance in this pattern. If you are not matching row gauge, shaping rates will need to be re-calculated along the edges to match schematic measurements. Swatching beforehand is very much encouraged.

Size A (Gauge Needle):
One pair of straight or one 32” long circular needle(s), and one 16” long circular, in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 3¾ mm (US 5)

Size B:
One 32” circular needle and a set of double-pointed needles (DPNs) three sizes smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 2¾ mm (US 2)

If using the Magic Loop method for working Sleeves in the round, the 32” circular needles can be used and the DPNs omitted.
