Short Description:  The Easy One is the simplest, easiest and dearest sweater I have ever designed. It is the perfect first sweater for those knitters who’ve always been afraid of making one. With its comfortable relaxed fit, you’ll be sure that it will fit you no matter what. Even if you don’t hit gauge perfectly…

The sweater itself is SO SIMPLE! a perfect square, no shaping for shoulders, no crazy short rows. Just hours of simple, relaxing knitting. However, it has been carefully studied to fit female bodies and proportions to flatter.

But this sweater is not only for beginner knitters. It is also perfect for the traveler knitter (I promise this project requires no brain power), for the experienced knitter who needs a break, for the fashion forward knitter and for the classic one… I literally couldn’t find any situation that this sweater project wasn’t perfect for… But then I realized that it might not be perfect for all weathers, since it’s a bit on the lighter side. Therefore I designed it’s big brother, The Easy Bulky One, worked at a very thick gauge!

Sleeves are picked up and knitted in the round once the body is complete. Florrie’s lace hem is a beautiful combination of simple stitches and sweet nupps, which are clearly explained.  Charted and written instructions for the lace are included.  Florrie is a perfect knit for intermediate knitters and beginners looking for an adventure.
