Saturdays are made to be comfortable and look fabulous as you head to the farmer’s market or your favorite fall fiber festival. The Saturday Sweater is a loose-fitting casual pullover that is meant to have 6-10 inches (15-25 cm) of positive ease. The sweater has drop shoulders and a boat neck that isn’t too wide or too close. The seed stitch borders give it a finished look, and are knit as you go.
