Basic Elements™ Sweater Knitting Pattern - WORSTED is a DIGITAL DOWNLOAD by Sandi Rosner.  You will receive your download after checkout.

A classic pullover is an essential component in every wardrobe. You’ll reach for this simple, comfortable sweater as soon as the temperatures start to drop. With its clean lines and subtle details, it will easily pair with all your shirts, pants and skirts. 

This sweater is knit in pieces and sewn together. It features a relaxed crew neck, modified drop shoulders, and tapered sleeves. 

While this is a great first sweater project for a beginner, this is also a pattern you can turn to again and again. Once you’re comfortable with the basic construction, use this pattern as a blank canvas for your own creative expression. Use your stash of leftovers to add stripes. Try different stitch patterns.  Make this sweater uniquely your own!
