Knitting for some men is a decidedly difficult proposition. The challenge is not always just suiting their style but also your knitting budget. This economical yarn won’t break the bank - even for larger sizes. And at this gauge you’ll have a sweater in no time. Although the wide expanses of stockinette make this a quick knit there are textured details to add style as well as keep your knitting interest.

The compound raglan design offers a more tailored fit - which means you might be knitting this for both the men and women in your life. Be sure to knit one for yourself while you’re at it!

Sample shown is 40” size shown on a 38” model. The last photo is the same sample shown on a 34” model.

Ciabatta is part of the serialized e-Book Nourishing Knits, where it is paired with a recipe for Antipasti Bread Pudding. Nourishing Knits is also available individually, without the recipe pairing.
