It was René Lacoste, the legendary French tennis player, that first conceived what we know today as the polo shirt. This pattern is inspired by René and designed so every knitter can enjoy the pleasure of hand-crafting a shirt that is as comfortable as the original design from 1929.

The pattern is worked from the top down in one piece so the only seam to be sewn is the body hem. The shoulders and neck are shaped using German short rows, stitches are picked up around the arm hole, the body and arms are worked in the round. Alternating stockinette and twisted stockinette create a subtle sophisticated stripe pattern.

Pattern and Row Checker
This pattern includes a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking. It also comes with my unique Row Checker, complimentary. A tool you can use to help keep track of your stitch count, row number, increases, and decreases. Throughout the pattern you'll find indicators of when to refer to your Row Checker.

Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
