Do you have a favorite dress or tee you can’t wait to pull out of the closet when spring comes? But sometimes the chill in the air is just a bit too strong? What if you had a sweater wrap that went with every accessory and occasion. Something that lets you wear your spring and summer favorites while keeping you toasty and makes you always feel great. Then Overwild is the sweater scarf for you!

Overwild is a long wrap with sleeves that covers your arms, chest, and shoulders, keeping you toasty while showing off your fab figure. Simple details like eyelet lace and ribbed edging give the wrap a touch of elegance while it’s still simple enough for every day wear. Knit it cuff to cuff or knit both sleeves first to check your fit along the way.

Overwild, as well as all Wild series sweaters, has modification at its core. What flatters one woman may not flatter another. Overwild had all sorts of additional instructions to change sleeve and wrap lengths, to alter the width or add drape. While Overwild may appear to be a basic sweater wrap in neutral colors (the kind perfect for any capsule wardrobe) there’s nothing basic about this pattern.
