Dandelion in a Breeze

Untitled-1

This oversized sweater is incredibly soft and lightweight. It’s worked seamlessly from top down, shaping the neck with short rows. The sleeves are extra long and get slightly wider at cuffs. The gauge is very loose and therefore I recommend using yarns that have a bit of fluff.

34 ¾ (38 ¼, 41 ¾, 46 ¼, 49 ¾, 54 ¼)” / 88 (97, 106, 117.5, 126.5, 138) cm;
