This easy, slouchy tunic is wonderfully cozy to wear. The diagonal free-hanging pockets are knitted seamlessly as you go, so when you are finished knitting, you only need to close the underarm gap and add, if you like, a neckline ribbing. Version A has an unfinished, open, V-neckline and long sleeves. Version B has a higher, rounded neckline finished with ribbing, and 3/4-length sleeves.

Before Purchasing This Pattern

This sweater is worked using the Cocoknits Method, a commonsense system for knitting seamless, tailored sweaters from the top down. The Cocoknits Method is explained in detail in Cocoknits Sweater Workshop by Julie Weisenberger.

All of the page numbers in this pattern refer to the pages in Cocoknits Sweater Workshop, where the techniques are explained in detail. Purchase Cocoknits Sweater Workshop or visit your local yarn store.
