This sweater pattern is very rewarding.

Complimentary StitchSaver™ Row Checker

Inspired by the classic white dress shirt, the body and the sleeves are worked top-down in one piece. Crafting buttoned cuffs, shirt collar and folded hem shirt tails contribute to the pleasure of creating an everyday garment that is truly sophisticated.

Haven’t knitted a top-down sweater before? Don’t worry. Here’s a free, printable PDF of top-down knitting instructions.

StitchSaver Row Checker

"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary 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."

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.

25 sts and 33 rows = 4"/10cm

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.
