Pistachio Saffron Kit

Free pattern on Knitty can be found here.

I love the casual elegance of a knitted sweatshirt. The loose swing that's easy to wear with anything. Throw it over a casual dress or jeans and you won't feel the cold in the evening!
This sweater is knit from the top down with a wide neck and sleeves and A-line body shaping. It's designed to be worn with plenty of ease so that it swings around your body. If you would prefer something more fitted, drop down a size and maybe even omit the A-line body increases.
