Complimentary StitchSaver™ Row Checker

Designer Knitting Pattern
This designer knitting pattern is worked from the top down in one piece. There are no seams to be sewn. A grid of simple, 2-stitch eyelets covers the body and runs down the sleeves. Raglan sleeves contribute to the simplicity of this design. And buttonholes have been replaced with an optional belt. Since Barbara is worked top down, you can make the length of the body and sleeves suite your own personal style.

This pattern includes instructions for all sizes, a list of all abbreviations, a schematic for accurate blocking, and a glossary of terms. It is accompanied by our proprietary StitchSaver™ Row Checker. Plus, a link is provided to Knitting Help on our web site.

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.
