Homebody is knit from the top down, in one piece beginning at the neck. The top of the yoke is worked back and forth while neck shaping takes place. Then the remainder of the yoke, body and sleeves are worked in the round. Stitches for the neck trim are picked up and knit at the end.
It is intended to be worn with 3-7 inches (7-17 cm) of positive ease around the chest. The length of the body from the underarm is approximately 13.5 inches (34 cm). If you wish to lengthen it, you may need more yarn than provided below. Any aran to bulky yarn may be used (two suggestions are given) that knits to the pattern gauge which is 15.5 sts and 23 rows/rounds per 10 cm (after washing and drying).
The pattern includes a supplement for sizes L - 6X with optional instructions for making the front of the sweater larger than the back, in case that provides a better fit for you.
