Knitting for guys can be a challenge. They often prefer something plain, which isn’t all that exciting for the knitter. The raglan shaping and pieced construction of this sweater will keep you interested, and he’ll like the traditional style. Choose a heathery superwash wool like this one for a fabric that’s richly colored and a sweater that’s easy to wash.

Skills Needed
Knit/purl, mattress stitch, picking up and knitting

Construction Notes
The front, back, and sleeves are worked flat and joined at the raglan seams and sides. The neckband is picked up and worked in the finishing.
