We've all flipped for Marquita! Chunky stripes, fun contrast color at the neck and shoulder, great cotton yarn--what's not to love? IMarquita is a classic sporty pullover that goes with a skirt or jeans. It is pretty easy, too. The front and back are knit from the bottom up with only a little shaping at the neck and shoulders. The sleeves are simple drop-shoulder. Once the shoulder seams are joined, stitches are picked up and worked for the garter stitch neckband. This sweater was designed for 2-4" of ease. Finished chest measurements are 36 (40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60) with finished back lengths of 22 (22, 22.5, 23, 23, 23.5, 24)". The sweater can be hand washed and dried flat. Designed by Amy Christoffers.
