Published in Spring + Summer 2016 issue of Knitty.


This sweater was created for someone like me, who is not the kind of gal who desires close-fitting, figure hugging garments. Featuring a cool open neck and a slightly cropped boxy shape, this pullover is easy to wear and meant to be lived in. Knit in linen because it is light and breezy, softens with wear and gives and moves with your body. Pop this on over a swimsuit, a tank top or even a button-down blouse since there is ample ease to allow a layer beneath.

Worked from the bottom up in the round, Inhabit features picked up sleeves, three-needle bind off shoulders, and no seaming.
