This oversized, boxy pullover is knit in a super bulky weight yarn, but the gauge produces a relaxed, drapey fabric. A quick knit, it makes a great layering piece for spring or fall. The slipped stitch and reverse stockinette stitch pattern was inspired by a poncho seen on a television commercial (and frantically captured via cell phone camera). Upon execution, however, the piece wanted to be a pullover, so the designer obliged!
