The perfect sweater for that special man in your life: a classic fit, set-in sleeves, crew neck, but worked in an allover textured stitch pattern that keeps things interesting. This relaxed, comfy pullover is worked in the round from the bottom hem to the underarms. The front and back are worked separately to the shoulders, which are attached with a three needle bind-off. Sleeves are worked in the round to the sleeve cap, which are worked flat and then seamed into the body of the sweater. The sweater is designed to be worn with approximately 4 inches of ease. Pattern includes written and charted instructions for the stitch pattern, and a detailed schematic.

This pullover could also be knit for a woman - substitute the M1L in the pattern for a yarn-over if you’d like a lacier fabric and go for less ease for a more fitted look if desired.

Casting on, knitting in the round and knitting back and forth, increasing, decreasing, binding off, seaming.

Sweater requires approximately 1100 (1300, 1400, 1600, 1760, 1920, 2100) yds/1010 (1190, 1285, 1465, 1610, 1920) meters.
