Devin Polo Shirt Designer Knitting PatternRegular price $ 15.00
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.
Designer Knitting Pattern
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.
