I've always wanted to knit a sweater that can truly be functional in almost any season. During the summer months, you can throw this on after the sun dips below the horizon and during cooler times, you can layer it with a T or wear it on a night out with a camisole underneath.
Madagascar is knit from the top down and in pieces and later seamed, leaving the armholes open. Sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked from the top down and in the round.
