A very basic, boxy sweater with set-in sleeves and no shaping, knit from the bottom up in aran to chunky-weight yarn. The body is done in stockinette with the cuffs, hem, and neckband in garter stitch.

​The sweater is knit from the bottom up in one piece up to the armholes starting with a garter-stitch hem band. The upper front and back are knit separately to shape the armholes, crew neck, and shoulders. The set-in sleeves are knit from the cuff up starting with a garter -stitch cuff.

​Stitches are picked up for the garter-stitch neckband. Finally the sleeves are sewn to the armholes.

Required skills: knit and purl stitches, working in the round, basic increases and decreases, seaming.
