This sweater is a light weight pullover that can be worn over a teeshirt or shirt. The saddle shoulder pattern is also used as the cuff and hem rib.
I’ve designed the sweater with about two to four inches of positive ease. If you prefer more or less ease, I recommend moving up or down no more than one size without making adjustments for the armhole, and neck depth. The bind off for the neckline is intended to be slightly firm to keep the sweater from sagging at the shoulders, if you prefer to use a stretchy bind off, keep in mind that an elastic neckband may allow the shoulders to slip.

This is a fairly simple top down sweater pattern for the most part. The sleeves take a little skill in keeping track of two different repeats. I used two row counters: one for the Pussy Willow pattern and one for the short rows and decreases.
