This cushy, unisex cardigan or pullover in eight teen and adult sizes (XS, S/M, L, 1X, 2X, 3/4X, 5X, 6X) is a fun, fast knit with deliciously easy-to-work texture all over. Knit flat in pieces from hem to neck, it has crew neck or V-neck options—and yes, pockets! The neck and front bands are completed with yummy ribbing for a soft finish. Intended to be worn with a slight drop shoulder and boxy/oversized fit, this sweater can easily be shared between mates if it doesn’t cause a squabble (but you could always knit a second one, just sayin’).
