Nightshade is the perfect layering piece for chilly summer evenings. This lightweight, drapey, cropped sweater has an oversized body paired with tight sleeves. It ends above your waist so you can wear it 90s-style to a pair of low-rise pants or in a more contemporary fashion to a high-waist bottom. The body is worked flat, the sleeves are worked in the round, all pieces are knit bottom-up.

The following techniques are used in this pattern:

  • knitting in the round
  • decreasing
  • increasing
  • picking up stitches
  • sewing together a sweater
