This top is an airy and oversized pullover, perfect to throw over a tank in the warmer months. It’s an easy, bottom-up knit and features a longer back to help create the drapey silhouette. This pattern comes in two chest sizes and a choice of sleeveless, loose sleeves or fitted sleeves. The sleeveless top has no shaping at all. The tops with sleeves have no body shaping, just add stitches at the underarm and knit straight up to the shoulder. Either way, it is simple to knit up, and the length is easy to adjust as well. I like the oversized top with the shorter length. It is great for layering with something longer underneath. The pattern includes how to adjust the length if you prefer longer top.

note: This top is designed to be oversized. Choose how much ease you would like for your top. You can choose fitted or looser sleeves. Make sure you pay attention to the sleeve circumference and sleeve length when making your choice. A schematic is provided in the pattern.
