The Knitting Pattern Says It’s Part of the “Wild Series”, What Does That Mean?
Overwild, as well as all Wild series sweaters, has modification at its core. What flatters one woman may not flatter another.
So Overwild had all sorts of additional instructions to change sleeve and wrap lengths, to alter the width or add drape. While Overwild may appear to be a basic sweater wrap in neutral colors (the kind perfect for any capsule wardrobe) there’s nothing basic about this pattern.
Get the perfect width and length for you as well as excellent sleeve fit! Knit the pattern from cuff to cuff or knit both sleeves first and join at the end. The options are endless!
