Chasing the ever elusive oversized, yet wearable sweater? You can stop looking; SUIT fits the bill.
Combining the comfort of an oversized sweater with the luxuriant drape of baby alpaca, with clean lines and modern details, SUIT will be your go-to sweater every day!
SUIT is the perfect opportunity to show off one of your favorite luxury yarns. It is shown in the incomparable Shibui Baby Alpaca DK: soft and supple with a beautiful, opulent sheen. In addition to alpaca, SUIT will work well knit in cashmere or a wool or cotton mix that includes silk or bamboo to provide extra drape.
As easy to knit as it is to wear, SUIT is worked in reverse stockinette stitch. With vented sides, a v-neckline and drop shoulders, the cardigan is knit in pieces from the bottom up. The front band is knit along with the fronts and continued after the shoulders are shaped, then joined and sewn to the back neck.

Zen2 is a sequel to Zen (or comfort food for the body). This basic cardigan with slightly oversized front panels and detailed edging is so inviting that you will want to wrap yourself in it while puttering around the house. Yet it is polished enough to wear to work or on errands. It is knit in a hand-dyed merino/silk/cashmere blend, making it soft enough to be enticing and durable enough to have for many years.
Zen2 is knit all-in-one piece from the top down with compound raglan shaping. Shown here in a skirt length, the cardigan can be knit to whatever length you prefer. Once the body is completed, the front band is picked up and worked. While the sweater itself is knit in Stockinette st, the band uses combinations of [yo, k2tog] to produce a lovely lattice lace effect, adding a little bit of fun to the finishing process.
While the first Zen was knit in a heavy worsted weight yarn, Zen2 is worked in sport weight, making it more practical for every day wear. It is shown here in Madelinetosh Pashima, but a merino/cashmere, merino/silk blend, or pure merino with a nice twist is a good substitute. And the Stockinette body shows off the beauty of a hand-knit yarn.
This versatile sweater is one that you will knit again and again!
