Flashback CRAFT Pattern: Lazy Weekend Sweater

By Nikol Lohr

With the slouchy, comfy fit of your favorite old t-shirt and a removable hood that can be worn independently, this oversized short-sleeved sweater is perfect for three seasons of layering. Designed in textured reverse stockinette, it’s knit inside out to avoid excess purling. But because it’s worked seamlessly in the round, it reverses beautifully if you prefer the stockinette side. The hood, which can be removed and worn on its own, is knit separately and worked flat. Knit on large needles for a relaxed fit. This quick-knitting project is perfect for a lazy weekend when you’re snowed in.

4 – 10 skeins Knit Picks City Tweed HW (100g, 164 yds, 55% merino/25% superfine alpaca/20% Donegal tweed), shown in Chipmunk.

You’ll need roughly 4 (5, 5, 6, 8, 10) balls for XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL).
The hood uses 1 ball of yarn (included in above estimates; deduct if you’re skipping the hood).

Note: The sweater shown is a very roomy women’s L with a fit roughly equivalent to a men’s XL t-shirt. It used just over 5 balls, including the hood. The size will vary somewhat by the length and fit you choose, so if you’re tall or you like a longer sweater, get an extra ball.

Custom oversized fit
