Free Unique Row Checker

Have fun making this sweater for any young athlete or sports fan. The design draws from the traditional athletic look but is styled for a modern feel. You can chose extra fine merino wool or a comfy cotton blend. Both make it very wearable with a shirt or a t-shirt.

The sleeves and body are knitted separately in stockinette, then sewn together to create a classic crewneck. Both the upper body and sleeves are worked flat from the top down—casting on at the neck edge and knitting to the bottom of the armhole. Then the lower body and sleeves are worked in the round from the armhole to the cuff and hem.

Pattern and Row Checker
This pattern is nicely printed on card stock in a handy pocket size. A list of all abbreviations and glossary of terms are included. It also comes with my unique Row Checker. A tool you can use to help keep track of your stitch count, row number, increases, and decreases. Throughout the pattern you’ll find indicators of when to refer to your Row Checker.

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.
