After I posted about my Loopy Mango sweater and noted that the ultra-basic construction made it a great beginner sweater but that the pattern itself did not, I got several questions about a substitute. There’s an installment of Knit the Look in the archives that answers this question. In this case, the sweater is constructed essentially the same way I did the Loopy one, minus the neck shaping, so it’s even more rudimentary. It’s also aran-weight yarn knitted loosely (as opposed to superbulky) and recommended for cotton yarn. So not only is it a great sweater for beginners, it’s more figure-friendly and a great summer sweater. For the full details, click through to Knit the Look: Franziska Frank’s easy summer tunic.
