Lovely drape and a flattering shape! This pullover's color changes are especially striking along the edges, which are neatly trimmed with an I-cord bind-off. Worked flat in pieces for extra stability.

SEWING PATTERN NOTES
To pair with this oversized sweater, I decided to shine a light on the maxi skirt trend I’ve been seeing quite a lot of lately. I’ve used McCall’s M7631 in view D. The pattern comes with skirts in three lengths: Mini, midi, and maxi. It uses pleats in both front and back and has a zipper closure in back.
#1 Pullover is available as part of e-book Where Sewing Meets Knitting, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
