Here is the Ravelry description Tanis has for the pattern:
“City Limits is my perfect sweatshirt style pullover. Written for a versatile worsted weight gauge, what I love about this pattern is that you can really make it your own. My sample was knit holding two strands of fingering weight throughout in 5 different colors to create a marled fade – Rowan’s (her son) sample features a single show stopping speckled colorway of worsted weight yarn. My sample is shown with the purl side side out while Rowan is sporting his with the stockinette side out. I finished all of Rowan’s hems with ribbing while mine received an I-cord treatment. So much room to customize! My sample features about 5” of positive ease with no waist shaping but instructions for optional waist shaping are provided. A versatile blank canvas sweater pattern – my very favorite kind!”
