The Weekend Sweater

Get cosy with this gorgeous oversized sweater – a high v neck and super long cuffed sleeves make this perfect weekend loungewear.

Finished with a drawstring and the optional extra of a pouch pocket – you can choose to add a colour pop by edging the neck & sleeves in a complementary colour or even go stripy over the whole body! We’ve knit an example up in our Seasonal Subscription Box colours to show you how awesome it looks like in blocks of complementary colours.

An intermediate knit, this pattern is knit mostly on the round, so you’ll save on the sewing up at the end. Finishing with a pick up and knit collar and adding a pocket afterwards, you can knit this beauty up in around 10 hours.
