There is nothing quite like a true wardrobe staple: A sweater light enough to wear all year, with flattering drape, a slightly oversized fit and a simple design with a twist. 

Now would you want your wardrobe staple to be cropped, tunic-length or somewhere in-between? Do you like your sleeves roomy or skinny, a tight or a wide neckline? With the Mix & Match sizing in this pattern, you get to decide!

The sweater is knit sideways from the center out with a seamless modular construction and Mix & Match sizing: You can chose and combine any of the 7 circumferences (1-7), 7 lengths (a-g), 3 neckline options (S-L) and even customize the sleeve circumference to create your perfect sweater fit.
