Worsted Boxy is Boxy’s big brother…
Much much quicker to make, but equally awesome.
If you have already purchased the original version, get the worsted one with a 50% discount (just place it in your cart and the discount will be automatic).

This is a very simple modern sweater, with a very wide body and skinny sleeves. Worked with a worsted weight yarn at a very loose gauge, it is very flattering, drapey and stylish!
A little short row section in the shoulders adds an interesting texture to the sleeves.
Directions are given to make a seamless version (worked in the round) or a seamed version (worked back and forth) of the body. The sleeves and the neckband are worked seamlessly in the round in both versions.
