A simple yoked sweater designed to appeal to the basic style sense of men. Garter ribbing trims the hem and cuffs. Above the ribbing stranded color work diamonds complement the main clover pattern at the yoke. This sweater is designed to be plain enough for men while still being interesting to knit.

This sweater makes economical use of City Tweed HW and knits up quickly at 4 stitches to the inch. The fitted yoke and drape of the finished fabric makes White Clovers equally appealing for women.
