Hand knit slouchy chunky stretchy summer cover up sweater one size fits most large to extra large plus women and medium to large men.

Please Note: In working with openwork/ lacy stitches I prefer the body and definition of less soft/fluid yarns, and this sweater does not feel very soft to touch (mentioned in case that matters to you).

The following measurements were taken with this item laying flat. It is a very stretchy, malleable shape so measurements are approximate

Bust/chest at underarms: 26.5" (i.e 53". around)
Lower edge: 23" (i.e 46". around)
Upper arm edge to arm edge: 33"
Width of arm: 9" (i.e. 18". around)
Neck: 11" (i.e. 22" around.)
Length from neck edge to lower edge: 19" stretching to 30" when on medium-sized mannequin (it would be somewhere in between on large or extra large chested women)

To protect the lax chunky stitches this should be washed by hand, please (lukewarm water, mild soap, rinsed well then rolled in fluffy towel to remove excess water, and laid flat to dry away from a direct source of heat.) Alternatively you could try tying it in a pillowcase (to protect the stitches from snagging on buttons, zippers etc.)---and machine wash & dry at low temps as for delicates

This ships via airmail (to USA) or expedited parcel (within Canada).

In a subtle neutral striping of creamy beige, green and brown.

"Cover-up", meaning you really need something underneath if you are at all modest---I picture it over a swimsuit when the beach breezes whip up---or to give an air of respectability if you want to head into town without changing. Would also work well over a tank or T with jeans or shorts. Might be a bit too casual for over a skirt or dress pants---but hey I'm not the fashion police! It would also suit a medium to large-sized guy.

This one is knit working 3 thick synthetic strands together on my biggest needles---one of which is a variegated yarn in cream browns and greens---it results in what looks like a shortie sweater when laid flat but when worn gravity pulls the stretchy knit into whatever length conforms to your particular body shape (i.e. the larger size you are, the shorter it will be). Short dropped-shoulder sleeves and wide neckline (which can be worn off-shoulder if you like that look), complete the casual style. Lower edge and neckline are finished with a crocheted edge in the same yarn.

I was so excited when my sweaters arrived yesterday! It seemed like a week early!Love my sweaters. Thanks so much. I'll be back for more.

I love, love, love my shrug! I saw a very similar item at a high end craft show for far more money. This one is just as nice... better actually b/c I love the colors so much more then the more expensive one I saw. A wonderful seller... thank you, I will treasure my hand made shrug for yrs to come like it was made especially for me.
