Lemongrass is a tabard-style sweater--sort of a cross between a pullover and a poncho, with distinct sleeves and yoke but open at the sides from the underarm to lower edge. This Joji Locatelli design has a loose, boxy fit that makes it a casual classic. An 8-row, 18-stitch cable is worked on the front of the sweater using either the written or charted instructions provided. The sweater is worked from the neck down, first in the round and then flat below the armholes. Stitches are reserved at the armholes and the sleeves are worked downward once the body is complete. Stitches are picked up and worked for the ribbing at the lower edges and for the turtleneck. Lemongrass is designed to be worn with at least 8" of ease to create the boxy look. Finished chest measurements are 40" (44, 47, 51, 54, 56, 58).
