OTB is a fun sweater that can be worn loose and flowing or pinned to a fitted shape. The slim line shoulders feature simple curved fake seams that extend down the entire length of the body.
The Aline body shaping is achieved with two provisional cast on panels on the left side. These are grafted together to create a panel that falls in a soft waterfall effect adding movement and width to the circumference of the body.

I really appreciate the help and support from my wonderful testers -
