Pattern Description:

Somewhere between a summer jacket and cozy cardigan, Georgia is for a woman on the go. Knit in soft organic cotton, with handy pockets for your keys and phone, Georgia is a summer wardrobe staple that can go wherever you go. Whether you throw it on over your bathing suit or drape it over a dress, wear it with jeans or dress it up with pearls, you'll always look sharp.

While Georgia isn't a difficult knit, it does require paying attention, since there are lots of moving parts, but that's what makes it fun and satisfying. First, the pocket linings are knit in advance, and then the bodice is worked all-in-one piece to the underarm. From here, backs and fronts are worked separately to the neck, and then the sleeves are worked separately and set-in. After the shoulder seams are joined, the front bands and collar are worked to finish off the sweater.
