Pattern
It was René Lacoste, the legendary French tennis player, who 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 vertical stripe pattern. This knitting pattern includes a list of all abbreviations, glossary of terms, and a crisp schematic with dimensions for proper blocking.

Yarn
HiKoo’s CoBaSi, Fingering, 55% Cotton, 16% Bamboo, 8% Silk, 21% Elastic Nylon

In this amazing blend of fibers, the cotton and bamboo are the basis for a washable yarn, silk adds strength, and elastic nylon helps the finished garment hold its shape. The result is soft and gentle with a wool-like stretch.

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

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.
