I really only have three words to say about this Sweatshirt Sweater pattern from Laura* at The Purl Bee: Oh. My. God. So classic and cozy, and yet so utterly cool! Look at those great raglans. But it excites me for another reason as well. A few years ago, J.Crew did a (deep V-neck) sweater with a kangaroo pouch like this — beautiful soft colors in some fuzzy blend of wools. I had to have it, and coughed up what was a lot of money for me at that moment in time … but had to send it back because it was way too warm for me. And I have mourned it ever since. But thanks be to knitting (and Laura!) I can make this one in any fiber and color I like, including a nice SF-summer weight one. Along with iconic sweatshirt grey, of course.
*I wish I knew all of their last names.
