Finished Size 38 1/2 (42 1/2, 46 1/2, 50 1/2, 54 1/2)" bust circumference. Sweater shown measures 38 1/2", modeled with 5" of positive ease.

Yarn Blue Moon Fiber Arts Woobu (60% merino, 40% bamboo; 620 yd [566 m]/8 oz [226 g]): copperline, 2 skeins.

Needles Size 6 (4 mm): 16" and 24" circulars (cir), and two double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); stitch holders; tapestry needle.

Gauge 20 sts and 28 rows = 4" in St st.

Neatly fitted shoulders and a U-neck emphasize the focal point of this easy top—a strong box pleat flanked by right and left pleats. Fitted in the back with princess seams, but with a boxy front, it’s flattering for lots of body types.
