Weekend Lounger | Oversized Sweater Pattern

Weekend Lounger | Oversized Sweater Pattern


I wanted to design an easy oversized sweater pattern for beginning knitters or a first-time sweater project. The front, back and sleeves are knit in garter stitch, so there is no purling involved! The boxy oversized fit, boat style neckline and drop shoulder require no difficult shaping or seaming. The long balloon sleeves require only a small amount of tapering and a ribbed cuff at the end.
