Unisex pullover in Lampshade stitch. Women’s version in light-weight yarn is knit to 17 sts x 30 rows = 4” (a medium-weight gauge). Men’s version in bulky-weight yarn is knit to 11 sts x 19 rows = 4” (a super-bulky weight gauge). Sally used “a very undemanding gray” for the main color, and a brighter/warmer contrast color.
