This pattern is available from cocoknits.com for $10.00.

Renee is a slouchy, oversized sweatshirt with exaggerated proportions. The armholes are extra- deep, the sleeve circumference starts out very large, and the body length is slightly cropped. The bottom edge is turned up and finished with a three-needle bind off on the right side, creating a casing for a drawstring cord.

This pattern uses a modified Cocoknits Method, with the shoulder join dropped to the back. The sleeves, however, are picked up and knitted down from the armhole opening rather than as a seamless yoke. Although this pattern features the signature Cocoknits English tailoring with the front/back join pushed to the back, Renee does not require the Cocoknits Worksheet.
