Smackover is a super cozy everyday pullover that will become an instant classic in your knit wardrobe. The piece pairs great with a button down but also works just as well thrown over a tee and leggings. The line of decreases down the center of the front creates a modern silhouette and adds some interest to the otherwise plain stockinette stitch pattern.

The sweater is worked top down from the shoulders to the hem. The body is worked seamlessly. The sleeve pattern is written to be worked flat then joined to the body of the sweater after knitting. But for a truly seamless piece, you can easily just pick up stitches around the armhole and work in the round on double pointed needles instead.

The pattern is available for free on my blog, but you can also purchase a printable PDF version from my Ravelry shop.
