This pattern is a beginner-level garment with minimal shaping with a fun seed stitch border and collar. It’s a piece I wear a lot during the hot summer days. Being made of cotton it is light and breezy and holds it shape.
Depending on the yarn you use it’s also machine washable!
There are 3” of positive ease built-in for a breezy, comfortable fit, please take that into account when deciding on your size.
