Designed to copy a favorite sweater that was worn to tatters, this ribbed pullover was made to order. Knit in the round with an all-over 3x1 rib, it’s seamless with raglan sleeves and very adjustable instructions.

Want a higher neck? Make a few more rounds before starting the neck back, or add some rounds to the neck band. Does your guy have especially long arms? Add a few more rows before attaching the sleeves to the body.

Available in S, M, L, & XL (4, 5, 5, & 6 balls of Yarn Bee Chloe yarn, respectively), This one’s bound to be his forever favorite.

Update Note: This sweater needs a stay stitch put in around the collar. Over time the ribbing in the sleeves, shoulder, and chest lets the neckline over-stretch. Putting in a stay stitch (a simple whip stitch or a chain with a crochet hook) will help it retain its shape between washings. That’s the only problem found with the original sweater.
