When designing this sweater, I knew I wanted to use worsted/medium-weight (category 4) yarn so that it would wrap you up in chunky coziness and could be knitted rather quickly. I love relaxed-fitting sweaters, and all Darling Jadore sweater knitting patterns are designed this way, with The Weekend Sweater being no exception. The fit of this sweater has approximately 8.5”-10” (21.59-25.4 cm) of positive ease, making it ultra cozy. The relaxed-fit is juxtaposed with a structured double-thick collar, which is very flattering to the overall construction of the sweater. I also incorporated a prominent ribbing at the collar, cuffs, and bottom of the sweater (making the ribbing "pop" more), which adds an element of refinement to this otherwise relaxed-fitted, cozy sweater. Lastly, I incorporated neck shaping into this sweater, to create the perfect cozy neckline for added structure.
