Huck by Meghan Babin is the simple sweatshirt-style knit that’s been in her design queue forever. It finally took a request for a “simple sweater” from a friend, and Huck was born. It’s a super wearable, everyday sweater, featuring a thoughtful detail at the collar, a modified drop shoulder, and waist shaping that nips in at the hips just a bit for a classic menswear look. The pattern is written with options for working with + without shaping. Huck is made in pieces from the bottom up and seamed, and the collar is picked up + worked in the round.
