Class Description: Ease is all about comfort. It’s your man’s sweater, redefined. Cozy, squishy, drapey–but with fit. The tailored waist shaping skims your curves gently for everyday wear, while fold up sleeves and tons of length boost the comfort factor. Please note that the sweater has a built in 3 inches of positive ease. Two options are included for the neckline – the classic scoop neck or Tanya’s drawstring collar. Please note that to work the drawstring collar, an additional 200 yards is recommended. There is a bulky version called Eased. You may choose either version. These are top down sweaters with raglan shaping.
Pattern: Worsted version Ease by Alicia Plummer or Bulky version Eased by Alicia Plummer
