Description

Knit this beginner-friendly sweater in a spectrum of color. It features a slightly cropped, box-top fit with
dropped shoulders, rolled boatneck, and loose three-quarter sleeves. Sleeve and body length are easily altered
for an ideal fit. This pattern includes instructions for both top-down and bottom-up knitting.
Knitting from the top-down allows you to try the sweater on as you go and knit a custom fit.
