You really don't have to resort to extreme knitting to achieve a great garment.
Case in point is the featured pattern above which has been given a few updated twists on a traditional classic.
Sleeves definitely look more modern, shorter, with a drop shoulder and beginning with a wider rib, reminiscent of the 80's.
Length has been cropped, not cinched with a rib allowing for ease with a plain edged hem.
No need to worry, no midriff is exposed but long enough to wear with a long skirt or wide pants.
Personalize the pattern further by adding two row stripes, easy for combining colors you love.
Four rectangles make up this simple design and it is truly seasonless. Whether you prefer cotton, wool or mohair, this is the pattern for you.
