This oversized sweater is designed with ultimate breezy, easy comfort in mind. It features drop sleeves, a boat neck, tunic length, and a silky yarn that feels smooth and soft against the skin. I love to layer year round and I envision Meeting Point being worn as a warm weather sweater over a tank top and leggings or as a layering piece with long underwear sleeves pulled down to the wrist. The construction and shaping are no fuss and the stitch pattern is a cinch to memorize. This really is the ideal project to unwind with at the end of the day.
