A classic tank top that combines stockinette with narrow stripes of garter. It is a simple stitch repeat that encourages meditative knitting. The cotton fine yarn is soft and cool pima cotton with just a touch of the softest merino wool, which gives resilience to the yarn. This pattern is worked from the bottom up in the round, then the front and back are separated for shaping the yoke and rejoined at the shoulders. Finally, stitches are picked up for the neck and armhole trim. The yarn is wonderful to work with and your creation will feel wonderful against your skin.

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.
