Kit
This kit includes yarn, the pattern with instructions for all sizes, a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking.

StitchSaver Row Checker

"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped."
- James

Pattern
Here’s an adorable pattern for any adorable boy or girl. This cardigan sweater has a few knitting techniques that will make knitting it a pleasure and design features that will make the sight of it on your special little one an even greater delight. This is a top-down design with no seams. It incorporates an elegant invisible raglan seam increase with knitted hems on the cuff and the body, versus ribbing. The peek of color inside the pockets is echoed in the subtle trim along the neck and button band, providing the finishing touch.

Yarn
Euroflax Sport - 100% Linen – Sport Weight

This sport weight linen yarn is wet spun from flax-fiber. Exceptional softness is achieved by fine splitting the long fibers and double boiling the yarn. Machine wash on gentle cycle using a non-bleach, mild soap. Dry in your dryer on a medium setting for 15 minutes, then lay flat to finish. For an even softer result, dry completely in the dryer. To enhance the sheen of the yarn, steam with a steam iron.

The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.

Testimonials

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

Patsy A.

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.
