I dont think that I could get used to how big those armholes are! I would have to wear a tee shirt underneath this for moisture control and probably for modesty too. I see the model is wearing a shirt underneath so maybe that was the idea behind this so you could get a glimpse of what is underneath?

This sweater is going on my to-do list. So simple, but still stylish. I love the loose fit and the oversized sleeves. This will look great with jeans. It would also make a great cover up when things start to cool down on a summer evening. I think I may make a few in different colours.

I love this. Simple, but with just enough design to catch the eye. Adding it to my list!

Super cute, in my opinion. I think it would be really cute in blue to wear with jeans or in a tweed yarn with slacks. I just wish it was longer. I'm pretty tall and almost always need to lengthen the body.

I understand that all patterns can be lengthened. If there is a yarn shop close to you, I would print out the pattern and then check with them!

so many colour possibilities - and option to wear with skirts or pants or jeans - great fun and looks to be quickly knit - great!

The email called this "A top that is ACTUALLY cute." Really?
