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. The kit also includes my proprietary StitchSaver™ Row Checker. Plus, a link is provided to Knitting Help on my web site. All in a backpack project bag.

StitchSaver Row Checker
It is hard to make a mistake with my unique 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.

Knitting Help
For your convenience, we’ve collected definitions for abbreviations, links to tutorial videos that may make knitting your project easier and more fun, as well as guides to techniques and tailoring. Visit the  Knitting Help page on our website.

Yarn
For your Robert Dress Shirt Kit choose between two remarkable 100% linen yarns.

Louet’s Euroflax – Sport - 100% Linen
This elegant linen yarn achieves exceptional softness that is the result of fine splitting the long flax fibers and double boiling the yarn during production. The result is a strong, easy-to-care-for yarn that grows softer each time you wash it. It is non-allergenic and can absorb 20% of its weight in water without feeling damp. The pectins in the fiber give it a heat-regulating quality. Machine washable and dryable.

Lana Grossa’s Solo Lino – Sport - 80% Recycled Linen, 20% Linen
This yarn is almost unbelievable. There is none of the stiffness that can be experienced when knitting with virgin linen yarn. Instead, the recycled process results in a beautiful drape that feels soft in your hands. Yet it retains all the qualities that make linen so desirable. Create a sweater that you’ll surely love.

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.

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.
