    Inspired by a favorite sweatshirt that I’ve had in my closet for over a decade, the silhouette of this sweater has an oversized body, dolman sleeves, and long narrow cuffs. These design features, combined with a mock turtleneck and hi-low hem result in a flattering and comfy wardrobe staple everyone needs. I know I’ll keep this cozy sweater in my rotation for years to come! Plus, the marled fabric created by holding The Farmer’s Daughter bases Recollect and Oh Dang is stunning. Even better, the fabric these two yarns create feel AMAZING when next to your skin!

    • Short rows are used to raise the front of the hi-low hem.
