I am usually all about the negative ease shaped sweaters, but my sister wears oversized drapey sweaters and looks amazing in them. I wanted to make something in her style and colors, so I went with an oversized cowl necked tunic with some crazy bright stripes. This is probably the easiest sweater you'll ever knit. It's just a big rectangle, and even though I used a fingering weight yarn, the oversized needles ensure that it knits up fast with lots of drape. The result is a lovely, lightweight sweater for all occasions!
