Here’s another take on the slouchy off-white sweater to pair with everything, this time spotted on an unidentified beauty in Paris. We don’t know the girl’s nationality, but her outfit is classic all-American with a twist. The sweater itself is dead simple, and could be easily improvised from the top down (in any weight you like) in seed stitch or waffle stitch or whatever your heart desires. Or if you want a pattern, I’d go with Heidi Kirrmaier’s Such a Winter’s Day. To get the look of the street-style pullover, knit it quite oversized — maybe 9 or 10 inches of ease. Leave a long side slit and work a few inches of ribbing at the hem on the front and back. And when you pick up the neck stitches, pick up a few fewer than recommended and knit two inches of ribbing instead of the prescribed funnel neck. For yarn, any off-white worsted would do, but the one on my mind is the one in my hands right now — Quince and Co’s Lark in Egret.
