Very easy pattern to follow with an effective use of knits and purls to make an interesting pattern. The pattern will be memorized on the first row. I love the classic sweatshirt with funnel-neck look and have been wanting to make something like this for ages.

The funnel neck is very cute and nicely proportioned but make sure the yarn used is super soft! The Calmer was perfect for this as it’s a cotton and acrylic blend and is amazingly soft and stretchy. I love the nautical colors and think it will make such a cute beach sweater. Very happy!

Oh, and this pattern is sized for an adult too so I’ve got some Shibui yarn set aside for a lux black/mustard Braemar for me.
