I had wanted to knit my sister something "big" for a while. This pattern is based on a pattern in Stefanie Japel's "Fitted Knits" book. I made a version of this sweater for myself, too, and since it was such a quick and easy knit, plus very figure flattering, I thought it was perfect to share! I used a good 'ol machine washable yarn as my sis is a busy mom to my two nephews. She's gorgeous in it!
