Valley Yarns Parapet is a fabulous men’s sweater knit in Berkshire Bulky. Parapet is a basic pullover full of cozy texture with classic pieced construction. Squishy, lofty, and warm, its rugged good looks are light but toasty. The pullover is knit flat from the bottom up and then seamed together, making this a great first sweater project and a quick knit! The box stitch pattern is in written form only.
