Bulky yarn can be overbearing to wear, but with all the modifications in this sweater you're sure to find an option that works for you & your wardrobe. You can choose from (slightly) cropped or tunic length, sleeves or no sleeves, & cardigan or pullover. This is a pattern that you can truly make your own, & it will certainly be a cozy companion for years to come.
