Combining an oversized shape with playful use of colour, the Off Grid Sweater is all about contrast, comfort and ease of wear. Knitted circular from the bottom up using an all over slip rib, this stitch surprises by using a simple combo of knit, purl and slip stitches.
This pattern provides easy to follow detailed instructions using the following techniques: Long tail cast on, knitting in the round, knit and purl stitches, slip stitch, increasing and decreasing, picking up stitches, reading charts and horizontal invisible seaming.
