Joji Locatelli returns to Wool People—her Seacoast pullover was a popular favorite from Volume 7—with an easy top-down sweater dress featuring graphic wide stripes.
Mimic begins with shoulder shaping and is worked flat to the underarms, then circularly to the single-ribbed hem. Customize the length by trying the garment on as you go; you can crop it at any point to suit your own style. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the dropped shoulders, shaped with short rows, and worked circularly to the ribbed cuffs.
Sizing is intentionally generous as there is no shaping in the torso; choose a size that gives you ample ease so the dress won’t cling at the hips. Our version is high contrast—Fossil and Cast Iron—but the possibilities for playing with different values and favorite hues of Loft are nearly endless.
