This pattern is available from designz.shibaguyz.com for $6.00.

This is the classic men’s pullover designed with a man’s body in mind. Our design features a braided cable accent across the chest, drop shoulders, and loose ribbing around the slightly longer than normal waistline.

The bold cable puts the attention in all the right places running across the chest and down the length of the arms.

We’ve lengthened the torso on this design just a bit to keep the sweater from riding up while you move through your day.

The ribbing around the bottom hem is designed to hang straight down with the body of the garment rather than gathering and binding preventing unfortunate bunches and lumps around the waistline.

Slightly wider neckline to prevent that choked-out feeling! Still don’t like that turtleneck around your neck? No worries! Just work fewer rows of the ribbing or only work a few rows then bind off for a neat and tidy crew neck finish.

Pattern includes written instruction, cable chart, and schematic.
