This sweater looks super comfortable and I love the yarn. The drape really adds to the look of the sweater. I don't think it would be a good idea to do anything other than use two strands. If you think the sleeves are two wide, then you can easily adjust the pattern. I think the wide sleeves add to the comfort. I might make the neck opening a bit smaller so it doesn't fall off the shoulder. I'm eager to try this one.

This looks like a good knitted sweater pattern for me to try. I have not made a sweater yet, so I hope it is as easy as it looks. The sleeves do look a little wide. Are you knitting this with two strands of yarn because you want it thicker? Could you knit it with one strand to make it a more lightweight sweater?

The sweater is knit with 2 strands of yarn on larger needles, this isn't only to make the yarn thicker it also determines the drape of the garment, since the drape of the garment determines how it turns out, I can't see any way to go to a single strand and still have the pattern work out.

I love this pattern!!! I'm a novice knitter so I think I'm going to try it. I'll have to go the next size up. It looks like she's made that easy enough to do. If I make it with the vintage color (dark gray with flecks of white) I can use any pop of color underneath and it multiplies my wardrobe. Yeah! I'm excited because as a novice knitter I wanted to make something I can wear!

I absolutely love the color of this top. What a perfect pattern for spring! The loose, off-the-shoulder fit is right on trend.

This is an interesting pattern, and easy to make. You knit with two strands of yarn held together, so it comes out plush feeling. My only dislike is how wide the sleeves are. I think if I were to make this I would make the sleeves a little narrower. The pattern does give size variations so I might be tempted to make the sleeves one size smaller than the body of the sweater.
