The Daily (pattern)



The Daily is a striped, drop-shoulder sweater by Andrea Mowry that knits up quickly in a bulky weight yarn. The skinny sleeves offset the boxy silhouette, making it a great all-purpose pullover that looks stylish no matter what you pair it with. As many people tend to knit more tightly in small-circumference knitting, we recommend going up a needle size when working sleeves as they are already snug.

I wanted a sweater perfect for every day of the week! The Daily fits similar to The Weekender, with a bit less ease and a polished crew neck. Knit up in Luft from Woolfolk, this Merino/Cotton blend makes it light and wearable all year long!
