A rough and tumble boy may not appreciate intricate colorwork or cables, but he definitely wants something to keep him warm. This project does just that--its a basic sweater with a modern neckline to set it apart. It is created with extra ease to allow him the greatest freedom of motion for his outdoor adventures and to help it last a little longer. Because it’s worked top-down, you can easily remove the original hem and cuffs to take advantage of one of the grow-with-me tips. Shown in size 10.

  • Collar is knit separately and then seamlessly attached.

“Work last 4 rows twice, work the first three rows once more and do not turn…”
