The sweater is designed as a slightly oversized, relaxed-fitting sweater with approximately 8.5”-10” (21.59-25.4 cm) of positive ease.

The sleeves are tapered for a more natural fit. Neck shaping is worked to result in a naturally scooped front neckline, ensuring the sweater fits and lays properly when worn.
