A classic cosy sweater, updated with a shapely and eye-catching v-neck and subtle waist shaping; I have a feeling Oatmeal will quickly become your go-to, super-flattering wardrobe staple.

Garter bands add texture with modern flair and the seamless body knitted in the round is exactly the type of soothing knitting we crave when life feels busy.

Knitted in the round from the bottom up and separated to shape the neckline and armholes, Oatmeal is then joined at the shoulders with a neat three-needle bind-off.

The sleeves are picked up around the armholes and the sleeve cap is knitted with tailored short rows for a seamless finish.

Oatmeal is your perfect first sweater project.
