Taking the concept of Chaleur and giving it a twist, this pullover has a similar feel, but has totally different details. With additional shaping, simplified stitch pattern, expressed seams, and oversized collar, it’s decidedly more Urban but still so, so, cozy.

This oversized pullover is worked in reverse stockinette stitch (purl stitches are on the right side) with exposed seams at the sides, sleeve bottoms, and shoulders. Stitches are picked up around the neckline for the cowl collar, which is knit in a loose rib stitch. Due to the kimono-style sleeves, the bust will be very loose. Use the finished hip measurements to determine which size to make.
