God sweater to make for all the seasons. It just adds bit of warmth. The size is good for me but I am surprised it is not offered in other sizes. I like working with the size needles it calls for and the addition of a "tubular stitch" looks interesting. Thank you for the pattern.

why is this offered in only one size? How many of us do you think wear a size 10?
