This is my interpretation of the  sweater worn my Samuel L. Jackson’s character Elmo McElroy in the movie 51st State (Formula 51).  All it took was one viewing of the ad for the movie and I needed this sweater!

For yarn, I used Rowan Magpie Aran in Raven.  Sadly, this yarn has been discontinued.  If you want to knit this in the same gauge wool as I did, you should be getting 17 sts. and 24 rows to 4” in stockinette.  I used 8+ skeins on size 7 needles and got a women’s size large sweater out of it.
