Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit and purl, standard decreases and increases

Pattern Description:

It's just an illusion: Pattern for a light oversized sweater with a decorative button band. Both front parts are worked at once and then sewn together after knitting the button band. So the front part is not really buttoned - the buttons are only sewn to the band and the left front part. So you don't have double thickness although it looks as if you have.
