Mere is a chunky cropped sweater with an oversized cowl neckline and pockets. The perfect thing for a crisp autumn day on campus, or a chilly evening in front of the fireplace. Mere is knit flat and the pocket linings are inserted as you knit the front. The cowl neckline is knit by picking up stitches and then working in the round. Vintage Chunky is great for sweaters; it's warm, soft, and easy to care for. Finished chest measurements are 34 (38, 42, 46, 50, 54, 58, 62)" with lengths of 20 (20, 21.5, 22, 23.5, 24, 24, 24.5)". Suggested ease: 2 - 4" positive ease. Berroco rates this pattern as easy. The sweater can be machine washed in cold and on a gentle cycle and laid flat to dry.
