A lightweight cover-up in a relaxed and comfortable style. This easy throw on sweater knits up into a one-piece rectangle shape with all borders knit as you go. No shaping, no seaming, no blocking required. The sleeves are picked up on a circular needle and knit to the cuff edge. You could literally roll this sweater up and pack it to go anywhere. It is great for the beach as it is light on sunburned limbs, enough of a cover to ward off an evening breeze, and it kind of goes with everything. The knitting pattern, written in both US and metric measurements, includes a schematic drawing. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl k2tog GAUGE 16 sts and 24 rows = 4"/10cm over netting stitch.
