Boxy is a very simple modern sweater, with a very wide body and skinny sleeves. Worked with a lightweight yarn it is very flattering, drapey and stylish!
A little short row section in the shoulders adds an interesting texture to the sleeves.
Directions are given to make a seamless version (worked in the round) or a seamed version (worked back and forth) of the body. The sleeves and the neckband are worked seamlessly in the round in both versions.

This design has also a big brother, Worsted Boxy and a sister, V-neck Boxy.

28/30, (32/34, 36/38, 40/42, 44/46, 48/50, 52/54).
Note on sizing: This sweater can fit a big range of sizes. The biggest difference among the different sizes is the sleeve circumference. Also, I designed this sweater to be a little bit cropped. You can easily add some inches to the body section to make it longer.
