Peachy is a crochet sweater which is worked seamlessly from the top down in one piece. It features a cropped silhouette with a relaxed fit around the body and a long cowl-like collar with a nice drape. The body and sleeve lengths are adjustable and the collar can be omitted.

The stitch pattern is interesting without being overly complex, enabling every level of crocheter to enjoy the rhythm. It features relaxing and repetitive ribbing rows alternating with fun-to-make eyelet rows, which work together to create an eye-catching surface and a soft and squishy fabric.
