Product description

Fuse’s lofty openwork fabric and generous drape-front design make it the ultimate sweater for cozy Saturdays around the house. Don’t be deceived, though – it’s not just for dressing down! Avery’s addition of shank buttons and crocheted button loops at the base of each front allows for an origami-inspired structure that creates a cowl-like fit and accentuates the shape of the body when worn in this way. A versatile garment that can be styled in multiple ways always scores major points on our list!

    CONSTRUCTION NOTES

    Sleeves are worked in the round to the underarms. The Body is worked in one piece from the bottom up, beginning with the lower band, which is worked side-to-side and short rowed at the beginning and end to create curved edges. Stitches for the Body are then picked up from the side edge of the band, and worked up to the underarm, while increases are made at each edge to create the slanted front pieces. The Body and Sleeves are then joined together and the yoke is worked in one piece, with increases continuing at the front edges, and raglan decreases made where the pieces join. At the top, the edgings are continued side-to-side, while decreasing into the body stitches, until each edging meets the center Back. The edgings are then joined together at the Back neck with Kitchener Stitch.
