From campfire to Main Street, Sidewalk Sweater resonates with understated charm. If you’re looking for an easy, versatile knit, this is perfect. Outdoorsy, the child’s version, is the most popular design from my Knits for Boys book. This pullover has grown to include some optional waist shaping (not shown) for a more feminine fit. The unshaped version suits men as well as women.
