The OG David Rose/Schitt’s Creek inspired sweater! This is the first one I knit and it got me hooked! 3 years later, almost to the date that I started this sweater knitting adventure here is the pattern for it!

This sweater is knit top down, in the round. I have included a waist shaping optioin. There is simple colorwork in the yoke and some color changes in the sleeve. And miles of stockinette knitting!

There is 2” of negative ease written into the pattern (so if you want no ease or positive ease feel free to go up a size or two).

I was a beginner level sweater knitter when I first made this sweater. I included lots of links to tutorials for the various techniques and included written and charted instructions. (Please reach out to me if you need assistance with the charts. I am more than happy to send out individual charts if you need visibility accommodations.)
