Everyone needs a sweater like Ponente to cover bare arms on a cool spring evening or to add a light layer over long sleeves in the middle of winter. The yarn is Remix Light, a DK-weight blend of five recycled fibers: nylon, cotton, acrylic, silk, and linen. The yarn has a natural tweedy look that is an excellent complement to the panels of textured stitches on the front and the back. The back, fronts, and 3/4 length sleeves are worked separately from the bottom up. They are assembled and then stitches are picked up to work the neck and front bands. Finished chest measurements are 35.5 (39.5, 44, 49, 53.5, 57.5, 62)" with lengths of 23 (23.5, 24, 24.5, 24.5, 25, 25.5)". Designed by Donna Yacino.

- 3 (3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5) skeins Remix Light
