Soft Structure is worked seamlessly from the top down. Simple cables on the body and sleeves peel to reveal contrasting panels of reverse stockinette stitch; a gentle v-neck collar with a peek of ribbing and a curling stockinette stitch bind-off echo the texture in the sleeves and body.
THE PERFECT KNIT
What makes a sweater pleasant to knit? The ideal blend of interest and relaxation. Testers shared their thoughts about their knitting experience:
“Lovely intuitive knit with just the right amount of interest to keep me knitting.” -Brigitte
"Perfect mix of easy knitting and details to keep me alert" -Anne
"The pattern was clear and was enough to keep my interest but not so complicated you had to pay attention all the time." - Annice
3 months - 10 years.
Intended ease is 3 - 3.75 inches (7.5 - 9.5 cm) of positive ease at the chest.
Finished chest 34.5" - 66.5" (87.5 cm - 169 cm), with more ease in the front than back.

"The fit is amazing. I'm a large-chested woman and I love that it's not super snug and then too baggy around my stomach. I love the neckline as well. So different than any other sweater I've made."
